Traveling is a ton of fun. But it’s also exhausting, and when you fall into your hotel bed or tent at night, it’s easy to put off important things – like brushing your teeth. Traveling, however adventurous, isn’t an excuse to be lax with oral health care.

The good news is that there are a lot of different things you can do in order to help protect your teeth while you’re on the road. Today, we’ll look at just a few of those solutions.

Pocket brush
A pocket-sized toothbrush is a great thing to keep on your person, along with your wallet and phone. These brushes are meant to be compact, out of the way, and effective at cleaning teeth. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a dentist who doesn’t endorse them.

Dr. Gilbert Omido believes in regular mouthwash use, and when you’re on the road, it can be a lifesaver. A quick swish before bed is a great way to make sure that the plaque, debris, and food in your teeth gets washed away – and all the cavity-causing bacteria right along with it.

Flossing is arguably the most important part of your oral health routine. When you come in for a checkup here at Gilbert Omido DDS, P.A. in Wichita, Kansas, there’s a reason that we’ll always ask how well you’re doing at flossing. It’s that important.

The little single-use flossers are a great choice for folks who are consistently on-the-go. They’ll help clean all the places your brush and mouthwash can’t.

When you’re traveling, you make sure to double-check that you have everything before you leave. Make sure that tooth care supplies are on your list. If you need tips or help with these supplies, give us a call today at 316-683-0440.
