- You forgot the toothbrush
It happened to all of us, at least once! If you find yourself without a toothbrush, you can rinse with water to wash away some bacteria or also use a clean washcloth with some toothpaste and pass it on your teeth.
- You forgot the toothpaste
If you realise you’ve missed the toothpaste, just use plain water and brush your teeth as you would ordinarily do. You’ll buy the toothpaste the next day.
- Use of bottles water
You are in a country where you are not sure the water supply is compromised or you are on a wild adventure: always use bottled water to brush and stay safe.
- Dry the toothbrush out
If your toothbrush stays wet, it will breed bacteria. Place your toothbrush upright in a cup so to allow the water to drain away from the bristles. Remember to take your toothbrush out of its travel container as soon as you reach your destination.
- Leave without worries
Before you start your holidays, be sure to pay a visit to your dentist or orthodontist and check the appliance to be sure everything is in order.
There is no place like home when it comes to your dentist, right? Prevention is about making sure to spot a problem before they happen so leave having your deserved peace of mind.
