Pack for Your Trip with Your Smile In Mind

June 4, 2019


Staycation? Beach weekend? Business travel? College internship? Sleepaway camp? No matter how old you are or where you live, there’s a pretty good chance you might be traveling this summer. Any time there is a break routine, there is a chance your dental habits might need a little extra support. Luckily, your trusted dentist in Lake Orion, MI has convenient scheduling hours and reminder texts and is available to answer questions. A little advance thought when packing can insure your smile doesn’t suffer this summer!

Pack The Essentials: Toothbrush and Floss

Did you think we forget to add toothpaste to the that list? Toothpaste is very helpful, but if you discover you didn’t bring the tube (or worse, the cap came off in transit) your teeth can be cleaned quite effectively in the short term, without it. Use a brush with a little water, and floss as usual. If you forgot your brush and floss, ask at the hotel desk. Many hotels stock complimentary brushes and packets of toothpaste. You could also check the camp store, a nearby drugstore, or ask if your friend has an unused tooth brush and some floss your could borrow.

Pack Your Bruxism or TMJ Appliance, to Maintain Relief

Your dentist may have answers if you suffer from loud snoring, gasping breathing, night time tooth grinding or morning head, jaw and shoulder aches. All of these symptoms can means something is not right with alignment of your jaw, jaw joints (the TMJs) or in some cases throat passages. Once your dentist has diagnosed the problem and created a custom filled appliance to help you find relief, it is important to wear it every night.
