Oral hygiene is vital, even while you’re on vacation. This is why it’s important to remember to pack your oral hygiene essentials. To help you, Dr. Anthony Foster and our dental team are happy to give you an oral hygiene packing checklist.

First, pack your travel toothbrush. The smaller the toothbrush you have, the better. This is because it won’t take up much room in your suitcase. Before you pack your brush, store it in a protective cover. The cover will protect the brush by keeping the bristles free from germs. The best cover available is one that has ventilation. This effectively allows the brush to dry after you clean your smile.

Second, pack your travel toothpaste. If you are traveling on an aircraft, only pack paste that weighs about or less than 3.4 ounces. If the paste exceeds that weight limit, it will get confiscated. So, make sure your paste is travel sized so you don’t have any issues.

Third, pack your floss. This is extremely important because it’s strongly recommended to floss your smile at least once a day. Not only is floss handy when cleaning your smile, but it is also handy when you have food stuck in your teeth. Instead of having a food-filled smile on your vacation, you can have a beautiful smile by flossing your teeth after you eat.

If you pack these items, you’ll be able to clean your teeth and gums while you’re away from home. This can help you maintain the strong and healthy smile you deserve.
