Are you traveling this holiday season? It’s important to maintain good oral health even while you are away. We’re sharing simple ways for you to keep your smile healthy, no matter where you go:
- Take your oral hygiene supplies with you.
As you are packing, don’t forget to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, and anything else you use to take care of your teeth during the day. Pack it all in one case so you can easily find what you need.
2. Plan for dental emergencies.
No one wants to deal with a dental emergency, but just in case, make sure you know where to go for urgent dental care. Having a plan in place will eliminate your stress if one does arise.
3. Eat Healthy Food
When you’re traveling, eating healthy food is always a good idea. Make sure you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and avoid eating too many sweet or sugary foods.
4. Drink Plenty Of Water
Drinking water helps flush toxins from your body and washes away bacteria out of your mouth. When traveling, make sure you drink enough water throughout the day.
5. Get a checkup before you go.
Make sure you get a dental checkup before you leave! We’ll do a thorough cleaning and ensure that you have good oral health for your trip.
