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. Brushing your teeth is one of those important things, but it’s something you can’t afford to put off.

The good news is that there are a lot of different things you can do in order to help protect your teeth while you’re on the road. Let’s take a look at just a few of those different options.

Pocket brush
This will fit on your person, right with your wallet and phone. They’re also designed to be particularly effective at short-term tooth cleaning. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a dentist who doesn’t endorse them.

Mouthwash
Dr. Glenn Ong-Veloso and Dr. Joy Helou believe in regular mouthwash use, and when you’re on the road, it can be a lifesaver. A quick swish before bed is great. It flushes away all of the harmful bacteria and plaque that built up during your day of traveling.

Flossers
You can’t have healthy teeth without flossing. That’s a fact. When you come in for a checkup here at Glenn Dental in Apple Valley, California, there’s a reason that we’ll always ask how well you’re doing at flossing. It’s that important.

Single flossers are great for travel since you can use them and toss them. They’re small and will fit right alongside your travel toothbrush, too.

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. To get more tips for these supplies, to have questions answered, call us today at 760-284-3060.
