Maintain Your Travel Orthodontic Care Routine

Traveling should never disrupt your child’s braces maintenance. Follow these easy tips to keep their orthodontic care on track while you’re on the move:

  1. Pre-Travel Consultation: Kickstart your vacation planning with a visit to our office for a pre-travel consultation. We’ll provide personalized advice tailored to your travel plans and your child’s braces.
  2. Orthodontic Travel Kit Essentials: Pack a convenient travel kit with must-have items like a travel-sized toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, orthodontic wax, interdental brushes, floss, and any prescribed extras.

Stay on Top of Braces Maintenance While Away

Taking care of braces on the go can be straightforward with the right approach. Here’s how you can ensure your child’s braces stay in top shape during your summer adventures:

  1. Stick to Your Daily Routine: Encourage your child to brush after meals using their travel toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Don’t forget the importance of flossing daily to keep their braces clean.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Drinking water regularly not only keeps your child refreshed but also helps maintain a clean mouth by washing away food particles and bacteria.
  3. Choose Braces-Friendly Foods: Opt for soft and nutritious snacks to avoid damaging braces while traveling. Consider foods like yogurt, cheese sticks, and sliced fruits for healthy and safe snacking.
