Taking Care of Your Teeth While on Vacation
Traveling can be stressful and it’s easy to neglect your oral health. Harbor Point Dental Group knows a lot of planning goes into vacation so you can completely enjoy your downtime.
Why waste vacation time going to the store for forgotten dental care items when you are ready for rest and relaxation?
Having a dental travel kit is essential to a relaxing vacation. Along with your travel kit, think about what kind of activities will you be doing during your trip and remember to invest time in your oral health throughout various activities. You will be glad you did.
If you plan to be outside for a long period of time each day read these tips below:
- Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
- Have in your daily travel bag an emergency phone list that includes your dentist’s contact information in a waterproof container.
- Pack a healthy lunch that includes a healthy dose of green vegetables and fruit.
- Check in with your children periodically to be sure that they have brushed and flossed twice a day.
- For sporting activities, be sure you and your children have the proper protective gear.

- Pack floss and mouthwash.
- Label each family member’s toothbrush using separate sandwich-size plastic bags.
