THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CREATING AN ORAL HYGIENE TRAVEL KIT
- How many individuals will use your kit?
- How long is your travel time?

ITEMS YOU DON’T WANT TO FORGET
- Be prepared: Have your dentist’s phone number easily accessible in the kit for unexpected situations.
- Toothpaste: Remember to place your toothpaste tubes in a sealed container or plastic bag.
- Toothbrushes. Don’t forget to include a few extra toothbrushes just in case you need them.
- Plastic bags. Label each family member’s toothbrush and place them each in a separate plastic bag.
- Floss and mouthwash. Don’t forget to floss twice a day and use mouthwash as directed to keep your mouth healthy and clean.
- Healthy snacks. Avoid sugary or acidic food and beverages that can damage your teeth. Choose healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables.
- Forget your toothbrush? Rinse vigorously with water to wash away some of that cavity-causing bacteria. When you do get to the store, make sure you buy a toothbrush with the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
