Do Not Let Tooth Problems Ruin Your Vacation

If you are planning your next Florida adventure, or vacation anywhere in the world, the last thing you want to worry about is your teeth ruining your pleasurable vacation. Rather than having a dental emergency on the road, consider these quick tips to keep your teeth as healthy and as clean as you can while you are on the go.

Travel sized products – Having a travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste in your travel case as this is the perfect way to freshen up. A quick brushing in the airport/rest area bathroom after a meal will keep your co-passengers happy with your fresh breath and your gleaming smile. Also, having floss on hand can ensure that your oral hygiene regimen will not miss a beat, even while on the road.

Snack smart – Bring along some healthy snacks such as apples, veggies and water rather than depending on gas station munchies to avoid extra sticky food debris that will harm your teeth.

Since finding time to clean your teeth on the road or travelling is often an afterthought and a serious challenge on your trip, make sure that before your trip, schedule an oral therapy with Drs. Thomas or Abraham, for your Oral Maintenance visit prior to departure, so you can enjoy your adventure rather than dealing with a dental crisis on your well-deserved vacation.
