Healthy Teeth on the Road

Posted .

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. However, it’s entirely possible, and easy, to have healthy teeth while on the road.

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. Let’s look at a few ways to have healthy teeth while on the road.

Pocket brush
Packing a pocket-sized toothbrush is the most basic thing you can do to have healthy teeth on the road. They’re small, and they’re incredibly effective. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a dentist who doesn’t endorse them.

Dr. Jon Ormson believes in regular mouthwash use, and when you’re on the road, it can be a lifesaver. Think of it like the antibacterial wipe you run across the kitchen counter after making a meal – it accomplishes the same things.

Flossing is arguably the most important part of your oral health routine. When you come in for a checkup here at Jon Ormson DDS in Amarillo, Texas, we ask about your flossing because we want you to understand just how important this practice is.

The little single-use flossers are a great choice for folks who are consistently on-the-go. With just a few minutes of work you’ll have clean, healthy teeth once more.

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 806-354-8526.
