Never Forget to Keep Your Teeth Clean Even While on the Go

Posted on 12/7/2020 by Tropic Dental
Never Forget to Keep Your Teeth Clean Even While on the GoSometimes people neglect to brush and floss if they travel on their job or are on the go most of the time. However, this does not mean you can overlook daily and brushing and flossing. There are ways you can add regular dental care into your routine, even if you travel.

How to Ensure Your Dental Health, Even if Your Travel on Business

To store your toothbrush, while on the go, use a ventilated container. Selecting a holder with ventilation allows your toothbrush to air dry and reduces bacterial growth. Once you arrive at your destination, set your toothbrush in a safe spot so it can amply dry out. Pack a dental kit in a separate pouch, so you can easily access it when you get to where you are going. Include floss or floss picks in your bag along with mouthwash (without alcohol, as it is drying), and toothpaste. If you are traveling with a carry-on, you can obtain travel-friendly versions of your dental aids. You can also be creative and add toothpaste to an eyeglass container for ease of use. Do you plan to camp? If so, dry toothpaste into small dots that can be placed later in the mouth and chewed before brushing.

Avoid Indulging - Too Much

If you are on vacation, you may be more tempted to indulge in sugary treats. For example, if you are traveling a red eye flight, you may be tempted to drink an energy drink to stay awake. However, it is better to get into the habit of choosing sugar-free beverages or foods instead. Chew gum when you cannot brush and stick to a brushing and flossing routine, even if your activity level increases.

You also want to schedule regular dental visits every 6 months in addition to following a regular routine of flossing and brushing. Taking this proactive approach will help you stay on track when it comes to caring for your gums and teeth. Give us a call today if you have not had a dental cleaning and exam in the last 6 months.
