Some Tips to Maintain Good Oral Hygiene While Travelling

During the festive season many people travel to see friends and family or will just get away for a few days. If you are travelling, maintain a healthy mouth with our simple tips.

  1. Don’t forget to pack your toothbrush, your favourite toothpaste and dental floss, especially if you’re travelling somewhere a little off the beaten track.
  2. If you’re seeing friends or family for a meal, slip a toothbrush and some dental floss into your handbag or backpack, so if you end up staying late or overnight you can still clean your teeth.
  3. Make the most of seasonal fresh fruits and veggies and snack on these in between meals rather than on crisps and biscuits.
  4. Instead of chocolate or sugary foods to finish a meal, head for the cheeseboard as the calcium will help protect your teeth.
  5. If you have a sugary cocktail, beer or wine then sip on plenty of water. This will help to wash away excess sugars and reduces acidity.
