Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene Habits On Your Vacation

Woman brushing teeth in mirrorIt’s finally summer! For many families, this means heading out for some fun in the sun at your favorite vacation spot. Here at Meadows Family Dentistry, we want to remind you that just because you’re taking a vacation, that doesn’t mean your oral hygiene routine gets a pass as well!

Below are a few great tips on how to make sure that your dental health doesn’t suffer while you’re on vacation:

  • Put together a dental hygiene travel bag – Almost every single dental hygiene product can be found in travel sizes! This makes it easy to continue your dental routine even on vacation. A few of our suggestions include: a toothbrush (complete with a toothbrush head protector to keep it sanitary), travel size mouthwash, and floss.
  • Visit our office before your vacation – By receiving a dental cleaning and exam before your trip, you’ll start your vacation with a clean dental slate. It’s easier to maintain teeth that are already clean and beautiful!
  • Be aware – We aren’t saying you need to abstain from all the delicious, sugary vacation treats! But please make sure that you’re staying conscious of your teeth, and brushing after your meals.

At Meadows Family Dental, we want you to have a safe and enjoyable summer! To schedule an appointment before your vacation starts, please contact our office, located in Castle Rock, CO!
