Traveling With Braces – Keep Your Teeth in Tip-Top Shape

Traveling With Braces

August is the perfect time to travel and we know that many of you have already planned some trips. Nevertheless, when we decide to take a break from our daily life and plan a journey, we often forget about our teeth. For that reason, we decided to remind you that taking care of your teeth on vacation is important as through the daily life, and we’d like to give you some tips on how to keep your teeth healthy while traveling.

First of all, put everything from your oral kit together. Make sure that you took a toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, and other tools that are important for your oral hygiene rituals. In case you are wearing braces, don’t forget to take orthodontic wax, while Invisalign patients can take new aligners or retainer cases.

Secondly, make sure you pack your kit properly. Avoid putting your kit in the side of the bag where they can easily get damaged. Moreover, clean and dry your tools before putting them in your bag, and don’t forget to leave some air for them by simply storing them in a well-ventilated container.

Finally, follow your daily routine as always and try to avoid unhealthy foods. We know that holidays are a time of candy and soda, however, the health of your teeth is important as having fun during your holidays. That is why, even when you have sweet treats, try to brush, rinse or floss your teeth as soon as you can.

After all, if you have any questions during your journey, you should definitely give us a call at (847) 749-4340 and we will be happy to help you or schedule an appointment for you. You can also text us at (847) 404-3268 for any quick questions or inquiries. Our diverse staff will be able to communicate with you in English, Spanish, Ukrainian, Russian, Polish, Urdu and Hindi languages. We have six convenient immaculate locations and six orthodontists on staff. It’s never too late to achieve that beautiful smile you’ve been waiting for all your life!
