Without further ado, let’s run you through 9 quick tips for caring for your dental health while on a trip!

1. Pack a Travel-Sized Dental Kit

If you travel often, you’ll know how easy it is to leave your dental kit behind. Since you’ll use your toothbrush and floss until the day of your tip, it’s easy to forget to pack it.

That’s why we suggest getting a separate dental kit for your trip. When you do, ensure it’s the first item you pack! Frankly, a compact dental kit should be after your passport on your packing list.

Your kit should include a soft-bristle toothbrush, dental floss, mouthwash, and fluoride toothpaste. Note that these are basics, as individuals will require different things depending on their dental needs.

For instance, if you wear braces, remember your water flosser to work around the wires and brackets. A list always comes in handy!
