When you’re on the road, it’s easy to forget to take care of your oral health. Bouncing from hotel to hotel in various cities across the country is exhausting, and it’s easy to just take a nap in the airport terminal instead of taking a few minutes to brush your teeth.
However, as you’re likely aware, you can’t afford to take a few days off from your oral health routine. Doing so can lead to gingivitis, cavities, or other oral health problems.
So let’s look at some simple ways you can do to keep your oral health in tip-top shape while on the road.
Brush before leaving the hotel
One of the best traveling habits you can get into is brushing before you leave the hotel every morning. Even though it feels like you’re on vacation and it’s easy to get out of your normal routines, you shouldn’t let traveling do that to you. Take two minutes and brush every morning before you leave wherever you’re staying.
Keeping some floss in your briefcase or purse is a great way to remind yourself to take care of your teeth. Floss being there will remind you to brush, as well.
You can also pick up some travel-sized mouthwash to help clean your mouth if you really don’t have a few minutes to brush. Mouthwash kills bacteria that cause bad breath and other oral health issues.
