However, sometimes in the midst of the hustle and bustle and adventure, you may neglect your oral health and hygiene.
Come and see us for a dental check up before your trip, so we can thoroughly examine your mouth and can spot any problems before they happen. You’ll have peace of mind before you take off and we will have the most up-to-date information on your teeth.
Many people don’t remember the last time they changed their toothbrush (Should change it every 3 months), so why not pick up a new toothbrush while you’re getting your other bits and bobs for the holiday?
Chewing sugarless gum can help relieve ear pressure during a flight and help keep cavities at bay on vacay. Chew gum after your in-flight meal, to get the saliva flowing, which helps wash away cavity-causing bacteria. Plus it keeps you feeling fresh during the journey.
Sunscreen? Check. Phone charger? Check. Toothbrush? Oops. If you’ve realized that you left your toothbrush in the bathroom cabinet at home, don’t panic! If the local shops are closed when you land, simply rinse your mouth with water and rub toothpaste on your teeth with a clean finger. The next morning, pop into a local drugstore to buy a toothbrush.
Usually, we say that you should be air-drying your toothbrush at home, however, this can be difficult when travelling. Keep your brush in a resealable plastic bag to keep it clean and separate from other items in your toiletry bag. When you get there, pop it open and let it air dry.
Avoid that post-flight feeling when your teeth feel plaque-y, saliva is stale and your breath is scaring your neighbour away! Pack a travel toothbrush and mini toothpaste in your carry-on bag and brush 40 minutes after in-flight meals or before you plan on sleeping. Remember to also drink plenty of water throughout the flight. Trust us, the person sitting next to you will thank you.
If the holiday isn’t the time to sip pina coladas by the pool at midday when is it? Our sugar intake usually increases when we go away, so make sure to end each day with a thorough clean – floss, brush and scraping of the tongue!BACK TO BLOG
