Dental Travel Tips
Summer is officially here, and with that comes summer vacation. Whether you're one state over or halfway across the world, practicing good dental hygiene is a must. Just because you're on vacation doesn't mean you should take a break from your dental care routine. Here are a few tips for good dental hygiene on the go:
- Pack wisely and double check. Make sure you bring all your essentials: toothbrush, toothpaste and floss (and mouthwash, if you can!). The travel section of many grocery stores offers small, travel-friendly versions to make packing easier. Don't forget to double check you brought everything before jetting off!
- Eat and snack wisely. You may be tempted to try the local foods, but remember to make healthy choices even while traveling!
- End each day with a good brush and floss. After a long day of travel and sight-seeing, you may be tempted to call it a night and collapse on the hotel bed without brushing. It's just a few minutes out of your day that will help your teeth in the long run.
