Summer is here and it’s time for vacation! Before you hit the road this summer, if you have braces, there are a few things you need to remember. Bringing some items with you will guarantee you have a great, pain-free vacation that keeps you on track for dental health.
We at SmileOn Orthodontics recommend you bring these items with you on a road trip, sleepover, or any vacation you take this summer:
Toothpick, flosspick, or other interdental cleaners
A water bottle or a mini bottle of mouth rinse
Orthodontic wax to help with discomfort from protruding wires
A small mirror for examining any possible issues in your mouth
Purchase a small travel toiletry bag to place all of these items so you never forget them. You may even buy pre-made braces kits. Please ask us for more information.
If you happen to be on vacation and experience problems reaching our office, we suggest going online and searching for orthodontic practices in your area. Most orthodontists will lend a helping hand to another orthodontic patient and get him or her out of pain or discomfort.
Enjoy your vacation this summer with a few precautions for pain-free braces. And Call our office if you ever have issues!
