Traveling With Healthy Teeth

Posted .

Traveling is a ton of fun. But it’s also exhausting, and when you fall into your hotel bed or tent at night, it’s easy to put off important things – like brushing your teeth. It’s entirely possible, and it’s even easy, to end up traveling with healthy teeth, however.

Today, we’ll look at how you can start traveling with healthy teeth.

Pocket brush
A pocket-sized toothbrush is a great thing to keep on your person, along with your wallet and phone. These brushes are meant to be compact, out of the way, and effective at cleaning teeth. Most every dentist will have a favorite brand or style, and you can ask yours to get the best recommendation for your oral health needs.

Dr. Jennifer Ortega believes in regular mouthwash use, and when you’re on the road, it can be a lifesaver. A quick swish before bed is like the last blast of soap and water on your car at the car wash – it really just cleans things up.

Without flossing, you stand to risk a lot of oral health problems. When you come in for a checkup here at Ortega Dental Winter Park in Winter Park, Florida, there’s a reason that we’ll always ask how well you’re doing at flossing. It’s that important.

The little single-use flossers are a great choice for folks who are consistently on-the-go. They’re disposable, small, light, and go anywhere you do.

When you’re traveling, you make sure to double-check that you have everything before you leave. Make sure that tooth care supplies are on your list. If you need tips or help with these supplies, give us a call today at 407-645-3636.
