It’s officially summer, and many South Carolinians are planning their summer road trips and family vacations. One thing you don’t want to forget when packing for your trip is your daily dental hygiene care.
Relaxing on vacation shouldn’t include neglecting your teeth and gums. Follow these quick tips to ensure your smile stays bright and healthy throughout your summer vacation:
¤ Make it easy to access your toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouth rinse by packing them in a separate, small bag that you can easily find in your luggage and place by the sink at your destination.
¤ Keep your teeth free from food debris after meals and snacking by packing a water bottle to carry with you. A quick rinse after eating can help, even when you don’t have the time or tools to brush.
¤ Don’t take a vacation from your healthy habits. You may still want to avoid tooth-staining foods like coffee, tea, wine, and berries. And, if you indulge in a few more sweets than usual, don’t forget to brush or rinse that excess sugar off your teeth to prevent buildup and decay.
