When On the Go, Use These Simple Tips to Keep Your Mouth Clean

Posted on 12/21/2020 by Moyer Office
A strong oral care regimen is vital for a healthy mouth. However, certain trips, tasks, and other obligations can keep patients away from their homes for long periods of time. Not having a regular time and place for routine tasks such as tooth brushing can make good oral health care a daunting task. However, planning ahead for such activities can help patients keep their mouths healthy as they travel. Simple Measures for Oral Health On the Go Rinsing with pH-neutral water or salt water after a meal is an easy and effective way to remove loose food debris as well as acid, and it can reduce the growth of harmful bacteria until patients can apply a more thorough oral care exercise such as brushing teeth. In addition to rinsing with water, drinking plenty of water – especially in hot or arid locations – hydrates the entire body, including the mouth's salivary glands, allowing them to prevent dry mouth, keep bacteria in check, and act as a natural mouth rinse. Being mindful of dietary habits while on the go is vital, especially when there will be long periods of time between proper dental care; excessively sugary or acidic consumables should be avoided. Considerations for Oral Health While Travelling Many big-box stores and discount stores sell travel-sized toiletries, including toothpaste and mouthwash. Miniature-sized oral care devices take up less space in patients' baggage and help patients maintain good oral care practices during their trips. Though many patients travel for recreation, avoiding temptations such as excessive drinking and any form of smoking can reduce or outright prevent a variety of oral health care complications such as oral cancer. Like any other part of a trip, dental care can be planned and integrated into the agenda. Exercising foresight and a few inexpensive purchases can keep travelers' mouths healthy. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation and learn how to maintain your oral health while on the go....
