Hi! Hope you are having a really nice comfy weekend. Resting is really importing to stay fresh. Especially for your teeth, they also need some rest. But that does not mean that they need a vacation from a good dental hygiene routine. In fact, you should not stop brushing your teeth and such even if you are away from home. That is why today I am going to share some tips on how you can take care of your teeth while traveling.

 

This is a really cool topic to talk about because there are some smart things you can apply. Even more cool is that technology is more convenient every day and this affect all the gadgets that can serve for dental health. You can save tons of money getting the right tools, they can last a long time so you get a lot bang for your buck. A nice place for this and dental is Los Algodones.

Packing everything right

 

Oh, the first step to traveling and one of the most boring ones. But it is really important or your case can end up a mess when you arrive at your destination. As a rule of thumb I do not like to pack my hygiene items with my clothes. So I seal it in a plastic bag and in a different case or a backpack. I am embarrassed to admit that more than one time my shampoo and toothpaste ruined my clothes for not making this decision.

If I want to be traveling in a minimalistic way the sealed plastic bag is a must. You have to make sure this bag does not open up easily or you will be in serious trouble. Some people tend to use Ziplocs bags but I am not much of a fan for them. But if it the only thing available go for it, you can also use a towel to wrap your items in case it spills outside the bag.

 

What to bring when traveling to take care of your teeth

 

There are some items that cannot be left at home and those are your toothbrush, dental floss and mouthwash. Toothpaste is also a must too although you can get it anywhere. If you are buying any of these dental items when traveling always look for the ADA seal of approval. This will guarantee that you are getting a good quality item.

 

Between a classic toothbrush and am electric toothbrush is a matter of preference. Although the classic toothbrush is more versatile as it does not need any battery and such. The most important thing to keep in mind about traveling with a toothbrush, any toothbrush, is to keep it clean and dry. You do not want to leave it moist as it will contract germs and bacteria. The same advice can be applied to dental floss.

 

If by any chance you find yourself in a long travel and cannot brush your teeth keep some sugarless gum. This will help to mask your breath and clean your teeth a little bit. Another good pick is apples and pears, they can clean your teeth naturally. Honestly they are a really good snack to bring while traveling if you want to take good care of your teeth.
