It’s important that you prepare, as best you can, for every possible situation while traveling. Dealing with a toothache abroad, however, can be a bit challenging. What exactly counts as a dental emergency? When do you need to call a dentist, and which office should you visit? Here’s what you need to do if you have a dental emergency while traveling.
We’re pleased that one of our very own dentists was the guest on CTV Morning Live’s “Ask An Expert” segment on November 17, 2016.

Suffering from a toothache or tooth trauma can be an extremely painful experience. We at 123Dentist wanted to give you some tips on how to deal with a toothache or tooth trauma so you can be as comfortable as possible.
Did you know: The most common reasons for losing a tooth are accidental falls or accidents related to sports.
In life, you may experience accidents or emergency dental trauma that requires an unexpected dental visit. Many people also lose a tooth as a result of fighting or being involved in vehicular accidents. In addition, it is also possible to lose or break your teeth when biting on very hard food.
Most people are unaware of the fact that a tooth that gets accidentally broken or knocked out entirely can be fixed back by a dental team at a 123Dentist Community Dentist Network practice if the circumstances are right. It is therefore very important to know what to do in case of a dental emergency so that you do not lose the opportunity of saving a tooth.
