When it comes to your dental hygiene routine, there are some products you are going to need to keep on hand all the time. We understand that you may assume there’s some wiggle room here and that you can just “wing it.” However, this is not at all accurate! It’s very important that you have all of the essential products with you in your bathroom (or in your suitcase if you’re traveling), so your smile stays healthy.
#1: A Toothbrush
Yes, this is just as important as you probably already assumed. When you’re performing dental hygiene, nothing works quite like a soft-bristle toothbrush to remove plaque and food particles safely and thoroughly from your smile.
Brushing with water is better than not brushing, of course, but toothpaste provides you with some hefty benefits. Of course, we suggest you use fluoridated toothpaste to ensure you’re getting all of the plaque removal and cavity prevention you need to keep your smile healthy. Use something you enjoy for a wonderful experience.
#3: Dental Floss
You might think when you run out of dental floss that it’s no big deal. As long as you brush every day (twice a day) and do a good job, you might even assume that you can skip flossing altogether. Unfortunately, you are somewhat wasting your efforts in dental hygiene if you’re not addressing each step. Flossing is necessary, so don’t run out of your dental floss (or leave it behind when you travel).
