KEEP SUGAR ACID AWAY ON YOUR VACATION

Family vacations are a great way to bond, whether it’s a new adventure or an old tradition. But just because you’re on vacation, doesn’t mean sugar acid is. Follow these simple tips to make sure your family’s oral care is in tip-top shape no matter where or when you travel!

 

TAKE YOUR ROUTINE WITH YOU

It sounds silly, but don’t forget to pack your oral care essentials! Toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash should all come with you. Just be sure to get travel size options if you’re flying to your destination.

If you’re traveling outside of the country, keep in mind that the water might not be fluoridated. Don’t worry—you can still get fluoride from your toothpaste and certain foods in your diet.

For long trips, make sure that everyone is caught up on routine dental visits beforehand. It’s better to play it safe and avoid any dental emergencies on your vacation.

Your hotel’s breakfast should have plenty of delicious foods, so try to choose a healthier option like eggs. Add in some cheese for a flavorful dose of calcium, which helps re-mineralize your teeth.

 

Headed out for the day? Pack some fruits and veggies with your lunch. Their high water and fiber contents can actually help clean your teeth.

Lean meats, poultry, and fish are all tooth-friendly dinner options you can find on the menu. These powerful proteins are packed with phosphorous, a mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel.

WHAT TO DO WHEN SUGAR HAPPENS

Sometimes, dessert is the best part of the meal. If your family goes for it, have a glass of milk with your sweet treats. The calcium helps protect your teeth and make them strong.

If you want to kick back and relax with a sugary drink (or cocktail for mom), just be sure to drink it through a straw to minimize contact with your teeth.

If you and your family get a little sugar happy on vacation, don’t worry. Just get back to your normal routines as soon as possible.
