Your Oral Hygiene Checklist When Traveling

Posted .

As the weather warms, people are traveling to and fro, seeing all the amazing sites the world has to offer. If you’re one of these people, Dr. Douglas A Deam and our dental team hope you have the greatest time! Our only wish would be for you to take good care of your smile while you’re taking your adventures. The best way to do so is to make sure you have the best oral hygiene tools possible. So, our dental team has some packing tips for you.

First, pack your travel toothbrush. The smaller the toothbrush, the better because it can take less room in your suitcase. Just make sure the brush still has soft bristles so it can properly clean the smile and care for your gums. It’s also recommended to pack a toothbrush cover so you can keep your brush’s bristles away from germs and bacteria. If you’re not sure which cover is best, we recommend packing a cover that has ventilation that will allow the brush to dry after you’ve scrubbed your smile.

Second, pack your travel toothpaste. If you are traveling on an aircraft, only pack paste that weighs about or less than 3.4 ounces. If the paste exceeds that weight limit, it will get confiscated. So, make sure your paste is travel sized so you don’t have any issues.

Third, pack your floss. This is extremely important because it’s strongly recommended to floss your smile at least once a day. Not only is floss handy when cleaning your smile, but it is also handy when you have food stuck in your teeth. Instead of having a food-filled smile on your vacation, you can have a beautiful smile by flossing your teeth after you eat.
