Traveling can be a stressful time, especially if you forget to pack the things you need most. However, there is no need to fear—Dr. Shad Ingram and our dental team is here to help you! As you may already know, oral hygiene is vital every day if you want a top-notch smile. So, we are happy to give you some oral hygiene packing tips that can help you remember your smile care essentials.

First, pack your travel toothbrush. This item is beneficial while traveling because it’s little and it doesn’t take much room in your traveling bag. To keep your brush clean and pristine, it’s also recommended to pack a toothbrush cover. The cover will protect your brush from germs and bacteria. Just make sure the cover has ventilation holes so your toothbrush bristles can dry after using them.

Second, pack your travel toothpaste. This type of paste is beneficial if you’re traveling by plane. Remember, liquids that weigh more than 3.4 ounces are not allowed on the aircraft, so make sure your paste is small enough to meet the weight requirements. If you are not traveling on a plane, you can pack a regular tube of toothpaste if you have enough room in your bag.

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.
