Travel Orthodontic Care Tips: 

  1. Pack an Orthodontic Travel Kit:Include a travel-sized toothbrush, orthodontic wax, floss threaders, and a mirror to help your child care for their braces anywhere.
  2. Encourage your child to drink plenty of water to rinse away food particles and keep their mouth clean, especially while traveling. 


Braces Maintenance Guide: Stick to Soft Foods: 

While on vacation, opt for brace-friendly foods like yogurt, smoothies, and pasta to avoid damaging the braces. 


Keep Cleaning Consistent:
 

Remind your child to brush after every meal and snack to prevent plaque buildup and maintain good oral hygiene.
