There is never a good time for a tooth extraction. Whether it’s your wisdom teeth or any of your other teeth, two things are certain: the procedure can be incredibly uncomfortable, sometimes painful and the recovery can be long and tedious depending on the procedure.

Aside from changes in diet, having a tooth extracted often necessitates some adjustments in lifestyle. It often means the patient has to take it slow, avoid intense physical activity and rest! The problem is, some of us have commitments — whether they may be for work or anything else — that we can’t avoid.

How safe is flying after a tooth extraction? This article will go over the risks, as well as the possible solutions, to make sure you’re safe in the air right after your tooth has been pulled.

How can a flight complicate my tooth extraction?

The extraction of a tooth has been known to result in a lingering minor pain that often requires the intake of over-the-counter painkillers. In some rare cases, it can even cause discomfort so intense that it needs a prescription to dull the pain.

A likely way this can be complicated by flying is the changes in air pressure in the cabin. These can cause sinus pressure, headaches, or even toothaches. Any of these on top of a tooth extraction can be incredibly uncomfortable, especially within the first 48 hours of the procedure.

What can I do to prepare for the pain?

The first thing you should do is to consult your dentist about flying after your tooth extraction. As a trained professional with access to your medical history, they can determine the risks more thoroughly, depending on your physiology.

A dentist is more likely to okay a flight if, for example, you only had a single tooth pulled. Any more than that (e.g. wisdom teeth extractions) might be too painful for you to handle on an aeroplane. In either eventuality, the dentist might recommend some painkillers.

Make sure to pack an appropriate amount of painkillers and to take them only as prescribed, no matter how much pain you experience. Any more could be dangerous for your health.

If you plan on eating during the flight, call your airline ahead to warn them of any specialised dietary requirements. Ensure that they only serve you soft foods and snacks, like soup, yoghurt, or smoothies (or take your own).

Other than painkillers, what else should I bring?

If you decide to fly very soon after your procedure, you might have to end up changing your gauze on the plane. Familiarise yourself with the process of changing your gauze, and make sure to clear whatever medical items and materials with your airline before your flight.

It might also help to bring an empty resealable bag or ice pack just in case the painkillers are not enough. Ask your flight attendant for some ice, and press the ice pack to your cheek for ten-minute intervals to relieve a little bit of the pain.

Conclusion

While it definitely isn’t recommended to fly within the first 48 hours of your tooth extraction procedure, it is understandable that it is sometimes unavoidable. So long as you have the permission of your dentist, and an awareness of both the risks involved and the solutions you can use to mitigate them, flying can be safe after a tooth extraction.

Dental health is an indispensable part of our overall health. In fact, unlike other sicknesses and ailments, experiencing any oral problems is not too easy to ignore. It can affect your mood for the entire day significantly. You’d need to find a trusted dental clinic and dentist to help you get through it. Most importantly, this clinic should provide quality dental treatments whenever or wherever you need it.

Here are some important factors to consider when choosing the best dental clinic:

 

  1. Offers quality service

When you search for a clinic, your topmost concern should be: ‘does this clinic provide all the services I would need?’

When committing to a dental clinic, make sure they can address all your potential dental concerns and that they can do a great job. Besides the service, you should also check on the clinic’s history, how it works, and the list of doctors it has.

 

  1. Is a trusted clinic

The best way to feel at ease with trusting the clinic you’re eyeing is to check how their patients think about them. That can be easily checked if they have a website or an online page with reviews.

See patients’ testimonials, and if you can reach out to them, do so. Ask their experience from contacting the clinic or dentist up to when they set foot in the clinic to undergo the procedure. Stories from your co-patients and even from the medical staff can also speak a lot about the clinic. You may ask your trusted friends for recommendations too!

While you’re at it, don’t forget to check the doctor’s accreditations too. Every doctor should have this displayed for their patients to see.

You can rest assured that here at WeCure, we only use trusted dental clinics and professionals which pass our vigorous vetting process. You can also view our patient testimonials on our website as well as on YouTube 

 

  1. Must be within your budget

What use is a world-class dental clinic offering all the services you need if these don’t suit your budget? Why would you also settle for a clinic with affordable services but doesn’t meet your standards?

The only challenge is finding the right clinic for you which tick all the right boxes. Our accredited trusted dental clinics offer exceptional quality of service but at affordable rates. We do all the leg-work for you so it’s all worry-free! Our concierge service even arranges pick-ups and drop-offs for complete peace of mind.

 

  1. Exhibits a great work attitude

No one wants to feel disregarded or unimportant, especially when health is concerned. Go for clinics, doctors, and medical staff that make you feel at ease and you’re comfortable with.

Prefer clinics that have better customer service. They should be able to accommodate you and your concerns when you have them. They should not be hard to reach and should know how to manage their customers. Most importantly, they should also be patient and know how to handle their emotions professionally.

Think of possible emergencies, and if you think that the clinic you have in mind would make your emergencies feel less scary, you’re in luck!

Our personal concierge service provides a 24-hour Whatsapp number so you can reach us at any time of day, whatever your concern or if you just have a quick query.

 

  1. Provides other perks

It is not mandatory, but it is always nice to know that the clinic you’re considering has some unique offers, especially for their loyal patients. Having occasional or seasonal promos can help you save up on expenses as well. This can also be a reflection of how they value their patients and their business.

 

Conclusion

If the clinic you’re considering has these five qualities, you should be in good hands. Sometimes, it will require you to call, research, and even visit these clinics in person before you’re able to gauge how they work truly.
