Continuing Oral Hygiene Habits During Vacations

Beach sceenNow that summer is here, many families are setting off on fun summer vacations. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you get a break from your oral hygiene habits! In fact, caring for your teeth becomes more important than ever during the changes in routine and diet that may accompany a vacation.

Maintaining Oral Health on Vacation

Below are a few great ways to make sure your teeth stay healthy and your smile stays beautiful during your summer getaway:

  1. Visit our office beforehand – Nothing can spoil a fun family vacation more quickly than a toothache! This is why it’s a good idea to visit Auburn Family Dental before your vacation to make sure that the whole family has a healthy smile! Summertime can be hectic and busy, so make sure to schedule your family’s checkups today!
  2. Put together an oral healthcare travel kit – Travel sizes are a must when packing for vacations and dental healthcare supplies are no exception. Put together an oral healthcare kit for each member of the family and make sure to include travel sized toothbrushes, fluoride toothpaste, floss, and even mouthwash!
  3. Be aware of your diet – Lastly, vacations can mean a drastic change in diet. Be aware of what you’re eating and make sure that you’re brushing your teeth after any overly sugary meals or drinks.

To schedule a pre-vacation dental checkup for the whole family, please contact Auburn Family Dental, located here in Wichita, Kansas.
