The Best Way to Take Care of Your Teeth During Travel Time

Travelling can make it quite challenging to keep up with your everyday routine. This includes finding the time for your oral hygiene. However, you should still make time to care for your smile. 

We have listed a few valuable tips to help you efficiently take care of your oral health while on a business or pleasure trip.  

Tips to Care For Your Teeth When Traveling 

Pack Sensibly

When traveling, make sure to carry a toothbrush and enough toothpaste and floss to last your entire trip. If you want to pack lightly, you can buy a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss at your destination. 

Toothbrush Cover

Use a toothbrush cover that protects the head of the toothbrush from contact with nightstands or sinks. In places used by several people, you may be required to share spaces, thus increasing the chances of contact with harmful germs. A cover will ensure the toothbrush remains free of germs.

Drink Water

As part of our travel itinerary, we all like to indulge in exotic foods and drinks. But if your meals consist of excessive sugar and foods with high acidic content, they can damage your teeth. Drinking plenty of water can help neutralize the tooth-damaging acids and wash away the bacteria from your mouth. Water also encourages saliva production and helps keep your teeth strong and healthy. 

Chew Gum

After eating, chew sugar-free gum as it helps neutralize acids, minimizing the formations of cavity-causing bacteria. It also increases saliva flow and washes away food debris, keeping your mouth cleaner and fresher. 

Oral Hygiene Routine

When traveling, make sure to continue your daily oral hygiene routine. This should include brushing and flossing twice a day. Traveling can sometimes make it difficult, but do not forget your brushing schedule as your teeth depend on regular care.

Schedule a Dental Visit Before

If you are due for a dental exam and cleaning, schedule a dental visit before going away. This will help make sure your teeth and gums are in good shape and reduce the chances of any underlying issue creating havoc on your trip. This is particularly significant if you are traveling to a remote location or where access to dental care is limited.
