    Is flying safe after tooth filling?

Posted on Thu, 6 Jul 2017 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: Hi,

I recently broke my tooth to the nerve, the dentist put a temporary filling in as I am on holiday and I am hoping to get it fixed when I am back home.
I have had no pain for the last 2 months, should I be okay to fly?
It's a long flight (24 hours) to be in pain if it's not all okay.

Thank tou
doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for consulting Healthcaremagic.
This is Dr. Priyanka Tiwari answering your query.

I have read your query and understand your concern. As far as you have temporary restored cavity tooth there is nothing to be worried YES you can take flight. There is no pain in cabin pressure change if tooth is temporarily restored . But still i will suggest you to take Analgesic medicine like Tylenol or Diclofenac with you by consulting with local doctor . Keep it with you for emergency case only .

Hope this will help you .
