Many of our patients here at Igel Orthodontics are gearing up to travel this time of year. More often than not, the healthy habits we work so hard to make routine, fall by the wayside the minute we pack our bags.
It’s important to maintain good dental care while traveling, particularly if you’re going through the effort to straighten your teeth with Invisalign or braces. Check out these tips on how to keep good oral habits with traveling.
Create an Oral Health Care Travel Kit
Staying on track with your oral health while traveling is easy if you have all the necessary supplies! Be sure to include:
- a toothbrush;
- dental floss;
- brace-friendly flossers;
- orthodontic wax;
- and your Invisalign aligners or retainer (if applicable).
Don’t Let Issues Go Unaddressed
Chances are if something has been bothering you BEFORE your vacation it will likely STILL bother you during vacation, and possibly even get worse. This is why it is important to address any issues happening with your braces, aligners, or retainers BEFORE you take off! Let us help take care of these problems so you can enjoy your travel plans!
Have a great summer and safe travels!
