For the next week, there are going to be NO problems.
The cell phone is staying at home, and for the next six days and seven nights your only worry is to let the sun, surf, and sand, take away as much stress as possible—and hopefully not add any future stress in the process.Future stress? Because of vacation?
No! Because you thought you could let something slide on vacation—your oral care!
Maybe you didn’t mean to. Maybe you forgot to pack your toothpaste and toothbrush. Maybe you didn’t put it in your suitcase because you were afraid it would leak out. Or you didn’t want to carry it in for the same reason, so you left it at home.
So you think to yourself,” Oh, I’ll just pick up a tube of travel size toothpaste when we get to the hotel.” But as soon as you arrive at your destination, it's off to the pool for fun in the sun.
Then the next thing you know, someone smiles at you, moves in for a conversation, but then backs away because—well, you know.
Poor oral health care when your traveling can not only put a damper on the fun, but can create future problems as well. If you don’t take care of your mouth by brushing and flossing on a regular basis, germs can build up and cause problems for you down the road.
Oral Care on the Road Made Easy
When you travel, it is important to make sure you don’t ignore your oral health. There are several tips travel experts recommend that will help keep your teeth clean on the road:
1. Pack carefully. Make sure you have everything you need and that it is properly and securely stored.
2. Protect your toothbrush. You don’t want it to get dirty in your bag, and make sure it is dry as well. A wet brush can breed bacteria.
3. If you're not certain the water is going to be clean enough to brush with, pack disposable items that do not need water.
4. Even if the water is going to be fine, pack disposables. It doesn’t hurt to have a back-up.
5. Store your toothbrush in an upright container and somewhere dery. So water left behind won't run down the shaft and turn your brush into a breeding ground for germs.
You can follow all the rules above just by taking a pack of Brushee's with you.
The Brushee is the all-purpose product you need to make sure your oral care is taken care of when you travel. Brushee's are even good to have on hand in case you did forget your brush or toothpaste at home.
Only a few inches long, they are easy to slide into even the fullest suitcase.
In a single Brushee, you have all you need to keep your teeth looking healthy and your breath smelling fresh. The bristles in the brush are coated with toothpaste, and between the toothpick and floss, nothing will be left behind unless you want it left behind.
Worried you will not be doing as good a job as you would be brushing at home?
Brushee's bristles are designed to give you the same feeling as you would get with your toothbrush at home.
So when you pick up that tube of travel size toothpaste, go ahead and get a pack of Brushee's while you are at it. It can’t hurt to have them on hand, and is better to have when traveling, than left wishing you had brought something along with you.
