The last thing you want to deal with during your summer holiday is a dental emergency so follow our advice and take these simple steps to prepare yourself in advance just in case.

Whether you’re soaking up the sun abroad or enjoying a staycation, running around looking for a dentist at short notice is sure to ruin your break and leave you with a hefty bill to pay. That’s why we developed the Dr Denti home use range, a series of products that you can use at home to avoid or resolve tooth-related emergencies.

Depending on your dental situation, here are our top tips on what to pack for your next holiday:

For clean teeth on holiday

Don’t forget the basics, you’re on holiday but your teeth are not so you still need to brush twice a day! If you’re still using traditional toothpaste, holidays are a great time to try toothpaste tablets instead. Toothpaste tablets come in small, lightweight packages and you won’t need to worry about them coming loose and making a sticky mess in your luggage or getting taken away due to liquid allowances on a flight. Make sure you use a quality brand that foams up well, contains fluoride and tastes good like Dr Denti Toothpaste Tablets.

Emergency care for crowns or fillings

If you’ve got crowns or fillings, you’ll already know about the risk of them breaking or coming loose. Thankfully, if either of these happen to you, we’ve got a dedicated self-treatment kit to help you out:

Loose crowns and bridges

Having your crown come off can be pretty embarrassing but if you’ve got a pack of Dr Denti Refit in your luggage you’ll be able to stick it back in place yourself for up to 28 days. No need to hide your smile in those holiday snaps!

Lost filling

Ever had a dental filling pulled out by sticky treat? Don’t let it spoil your fun, take a pack of Dr Denti Tooth-Fil with you on holiday. You can use Tooth-Fil to replace a filling in around 15 minutes, then get straight back to having fun.

Cleaning ortho aligners, dentures or night guards

If you wear any type of removable dental appliance, priority one is keeping it clean and protected. For this, there’s no better option than Dr Mark’s HyGenie. This patented cleaner doubles up as a protective cage and cleans removable dental devices in under a minute, the perfect way to keep your aligners, denture or night guard clean and safe on holiday.

Quick repairs for dentures

Suffering a broken denture on holiday is the stuff of nightmares. Don’t run the risk of being caught without your teeth, keep a mini repair kit like Dr Denti Superfix on hand just in case. Superfix is simple to use and repairs traditional acrylic dentures in around 30 minutes.
