Travelling After a Dental Procedure

Posted on 5/10/2021 by Dr. Janice Pliszczak
Travelling After a Dental ProcedureThings don't always work out the way you want. You might have been planning to leave for a long vacation when a sudden toothache might have you getting a root canal instead. However, a dental procedure doesn't necessarily mean you need to abandon your travel plans. Here's what you need to remember instead.

Type of Dental Work

Most dental procedures won't require you to cancel your travel plans. However, depending on the type of dental work you have gotten, it might be better to delay your travel plans by a day or two. For instance, if you just got some routine work done such as filling or cleaning, you proceed with your travel plans as scheduled without any worries.

However, if you've had more invasive work done such as wisdom tooth removal or dental implantations, it would be better to wait a day or two before flying. After such dental procedures, your teeth may feel extra sensitive or you might still have a little bleeding from your gums. If you choose to fly immediately after such dental work, the stress of travelling along with the changing air pressures during flying can worsen the pain and discomfort.

Moreover, you might also be taking painkillers which could make you drowsy and further ruin your travel experience. That's why it's best to schedule any dental work a couple of weeks before travelling. If it was a sudden procedure, it's best to delay your plan for at least 24 to 48 hours.
