Traveling, either for business or for leisure, can disrupt your normal schedule – and that includes the way you care for your teeth. When you’re out of the house and on the go, it can be easy to forget about your normal dental habits because of a hectic traveling schedule, or because you left your dental health products at home. You can properly take care of your teeth even when you’re out of the comfort of your home by following a few simple tips.
You can make the most out of your limited luggage space by choosing travel-sized options of your favourite dental products. Instead of bringing a full-sized tube of toothpaste, choose a travel-sized product which would be enough to last for the duration of your trip. A folding toothbrush is ideal for traveling since it consumes even less space than the regular toothbrush. A small bottle of mouthwash will also be a smart choice, compared to the option of bringing that whole bottle that will take up too much space in your bags – and the contents may even accidentally spill out into your clothes!
Don’t forget to bring dental floss. You will still need the spaces between teeth, and between the gum line, clean even if you are on a trip. The floss will take almost no space in your luggage along with your travel-sized dental health products. Make sure that you stay hydrated throughout your trip by drinking plenty of water, which also helps out in flushing food debris from your mouth.
