Keep Your Child’s Smile Bright this Summer with Travel-Friendly Orthodontic Care Tips

Summer is here, and we at Longmont Orthodontics want to help you ensure your child’s braces stay in top shape even while on vacation. Here are some handy tips for maintaining excellent oral hygiene on the go:

  1. Pack the Essentials: Don’t forget to bring along a travel toothbrush, toothpaste, floss threaders, and interdental brushes to keep your child’s braces clean.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Encourage your child to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help wash away food particles and prevent plaque buildup around their braces.
  3. Snack Smart: Opt for braces-friendly snacks like yogurt, cheese, fruit, and unsweetened applesauce to avoid damaging brackets or wires while on the road.
  4. Emergency Kit: Put together a small emergency kit with orthodontic wax, over-the-counter pain relievers, and our contact information (303-651-7771) in case of any issues with your child’s braces.
  5. Regular Oral Care Routine: Remind your child to stick to their regular oral care routine of brushing after meals, flossing daily, and using a fluoride mouthwash to keep their smile healthy.
  6. Use a Travel Case: Keep all orthodontic supplies in a travel case to stay organized and ensure nothing gets misplaced during your summer adventures.
  7. Schedule a Check-Up: Before heading out on your vacation, schedule a quick braces check-up with us at 1325 Hover St, Suite 102, Longmont, CO 80501, to address any concerns and ensure everything is in order.

We hope these tips help you and your child enjoy a fun and worry-free summer vacation while maintaining excellent braces maintenance and oral hygiene on the go. Have a fantastic summer from all of us at Longmont Orthodontics!
