Some travel tips for healthier smile
Are you heading for a long vacation?
Keep your supplies handy; do remember to take a toothbrush, floss & toothpaste with you. It’s best to have them in travel sizes.
Select a travel case large enough to ensure sufficient air circulation, a damp and moist environment have optimal conditions for bacteria to breed. Use a hair dryer to further to expel any moisture from your oral hygiene kit.
Pack sugar free xylitol chewing gum, as chewing stimulates saliva and helps reduce acidity in your mouth thereby preventing caries.
Don’t leave your home with toothache; make an appointment with your dentist. Having a dental emergency far from home is terrible!
Most importantly stick to your oral hygiene routine, you might be on vacation but those bacterias aren’t.
