It can be hard to take care of your teeth while you’re busy traveling, but it is just as important to stay healthy and have good dental care on the road as it is at home. Follow these tips from our doctor in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, to keep you and your family’s mouth healthy while traveling.

Less sugar means less bacteria growth. This is especially important to limit your normal schedule and dental care habits get disrupted during travel. Cut back on sugar-rich drinks and foods. Switch juice and soda for water, switch crackers and cookies for carrots, and you can keep your teeth safe from bacteria and plaque growth.

Put aside time in your schedule to brush, rinse and floss. Don’t skip out on daily dental hygiene, no matter where you are. Pack your toothbrush so it’s easy to reach and access when making a pit stop or in an airport bathroom. Disposable floss sticks can also make caring for your gums easier when traveling.
