Don’t forget Your Toothbrush!

It’s easy for your oral health to slide whilst you are away from home and out of your normal routine.

Here are a few hints and tips to help with your packing….

News flash! Electric toothbrushes are portable! And travel adaptors are available if required.

But if you are stuck for space a manual toothbrush would be perfect, no need for a fussy one, a medium firmness with a small head would be great. And toothbrush cases are available to keep your toothbrush clean on your travels.

For those of us that use interdental aids most of them come with tops and travel cases so there are no excuses there either.

Floss packs into small places and there are travel sized mouthwashes and toothpastes available too.

Some places you may be visiting the water that comes out the bathroom taps may not always be drinking water, if in doubt best to do your daily tooth cleaning routine using bottled water. The same goes for cleaning of any night guards or dentures too.

Another thing to consider is packing your toothbrush and some toothpaste in your carry on luggage especially if you are flying long haul, what better way to freshen up before landing at your destination.

The main thing is to keep up with your routine and a little extra effort can go a long way to keeping your mouth healthy.

Happy travels, and don’t forget to send us a post card.
