Travel Tips for Your Teeth

1. Use a Tooth Brush Cover
A toothbrush cover will help to prevent dirt and grime that has accumulated in your luggage from reaching your brush head. However, make sure your case or cover has enough ventilation so mold or bacteria doesn’t begin to grow.

2. Dry Out Your Tooth Brush
Bacteria thrive in wet, dark areas. In order to prevent bacterial build up, dry out your toothbrush before you pack it up for vacation.

3. Pack Your Dental Products in Your Carry On

Way too often airlines lose our luggage. When packing, assume your luggage will be lost and pack your carry on as if you will be living out of it until your bags are found. This requires packing an extra outfit, shoes, and your toothbrush. Losing your luggage is already a hassle; don’t get stuck without your dental products as well!

4. Use Bottled Water to Brush
A lot of times when traveling to exotic locations such as Mexico or the Dominican Republic, you may need to avoid drinking questionable tap water. If this is a concern, drink strictly bottled water. People often don’t realize that the smallest amount of contaminated water can make you sick, even when simply brushing your teeth. Splash your toothbrush with bottled water instead of the tap to prevent Montezuma’s Revenge.

5. Pack Lightly
Packing miniature dental products, such as toothpaste or floss, can help save space in your luggage. Also, if you accidentally forget it in the hotel bathroom when you check out, it's no big deal. Lucky for you, Advance Family Dental offers free travel toothpaste and floss. Make sure to pick some up at your next appointment to have on hand for a vacation!

  1. I think that too many people forget about their dental health when they are going on a trip. It's important to get things like this figured out though. It's never fun to have to buy a new toothbrush when you get to your destination because you forgot to pack one, or because your luggage was lost.

  2. Thanks for the tips. I'm traveling out of the country in a few weeks, so i"m glad I read this post. I definitely don't want any grime to get on my toothbrush, so I'll be sure to keep it in a cover.

  3. My husband and I went out of town recently, and our luggage got lost. I had remembered to pack my toothbrush, but I didn't have any toothpaste. I was pretty bummed out, but you can guarantee that I will never forget that again!

  7. Dental health is quite a crucial aspect of your health which should not be neglected at all. we do not recognize the issue of dentistry until we face a toothache or other dental problems. It could end up being one of the causes from being unable to attend to your regular daily activities.

  8. I agree, it seems important to keep my toothbrush dry when I go on vacation. Usually, I'll carry a toothbrush with me so that I can take care of my teeth wherever I am. I've been concerned about getting it dry enough after brushing, so do you have any suggestions that I can use if I don't have any paper towels available to use for drying off my toothbrush? There have been a few times when I had to put it back in my purse when it was wet because a bathroom only had hand dryers.
