Second, take all pertinent information with you such as your dentist phone number and e-mail address plus your dental insurance information. Also a list and dose of your medications could come in handy. Finally, avoid chewing foods that are “hard” like almonds, certain candies, popcorn, and of coarse don’t chew ice. These precautions will help avoid many dental emergencies while you enjoy your much deserved vacation.
