With a busy holiday season coming quickly, it’s likely that you’ll be spending a good portion of the holidays on the road. When that happens, it’s easy to forget to take care of the little things, like your oral health. However, that’s one part of your health you can’t afford to skimp out on.

So let’s look at a few things you can do to ensure that, no matter where your holiday travels take you this season, you’ll have the best oral health possible.

Carry a toothbrush

A travel toothbrush packed into your carry-on or other suitcase is a great way to make sure you always have something with which you can clean your teeth. In airport bathrooms or motels, you’ll always have a brush to keep your teeth clean.


If you forget to brush or floss, another great thing to have in your travel bag is mouthwash. While it’s not a permanent solution for brushing teeth, it’s a great way to remove bacteria from your mouth as quickly as possible. It won’t remove plaque but it’ll help keep most of the bad bacteria in your mouth at bay.
