Do you wear an occlusal guard for your oral health needs? Do you notice that when your day-to-day life is consistent and you’re in the usual swing of things, you have no problem keeping up with wearing and caring for your guard? However, when the schedule is shaken up a bit (such as from holidays), are you much more apt to make a mistake, leave it behind, etc.? We can help! This is very common and something that’s easy to overcome.
Write It All Out
Where are you going for the holidays? What’s your plan? Are you traveling? Do you have a ton of people visiting your house? Whatever the case, you don’t want to forget about your essential occlusal guard, which is keeping your smile and oral health safe! Consider writing out exactly what you need. This might include:
- Jotting down your guard on your travel list
- Writing down a reminder list that you need to purchase or bring along your storage case
- Placing a reminder on your bedside table (or in your phone) to wear your guard
Don’t Break The Routine
Your routine, during holiday time, is already broken before you begin! You may have time away from work for a nice relaxing vacation. You may be heading out of state. Whatever you have planned, things aren’t going the way they usually do every day. That doesn’t mean, though, that you should go without your occlusal guard for even one night! When you plan ahead and create reminders, you can easily remember to wear your appliance. The result? Your smile will stay comfortable and protected, so engaging in festivities is nothing but fun.
