Tips for Having a Smile-Healthy Spring Break

Posted .

Are you excited for your spring break? If so, you’re probably planning many fun and entertaining adventures with family and friends. Now, we all know your spring break will most likely be busy, but that doesn’t mean you should forget to care for your smile. In fact, you should make smile care a top priority while you’re enjoying your break. That way you can have a smile-healthy spring break and that way you reduce your chances of suffering dental issues. Our dentists and team encourage you to have a smile-healthy spring break by doing the following things:

-Pack your oral hygiene tools: Make sure to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and mouthwash with you on spring break. Remember: If you’re traveling on an airplane, you can’t take liquid oral hygiene tools that weigh more than 3.4 ounces.

-Clean your smile: You have your oral hygiene tools in your bag, so use them! It’s very important to remember to clean your smile regularly, no matter how busy you are on your trip. Make sure to brush twice a day, floss once a day and rinse daily.

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can protect your smile when you participate in high-contact sports and activities. You don’t want to suffer knocked-out and broken teeth, do you? So, make sure to wear a mouthguard when you’re active.
