Orthodontic Patients: What to Pack (& Eat) on Vacation

Life Is Better With a Smile

Summer is just right around the corner, and that means vacations for a large number of families and adults. If you are one of the millions of people who wear braces or use Invisalign, you will want to know how to care for your braces or aligners while you are enjoying your vacation away from home.

Before you head out the door and start your vacation, you need to make sure you have packed the right essentials. Some of the more common items to pack for your orthodontic care include:

  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • Dental Floss
  • Retainer Case
  • Aligners Case

While you are on vacation, you may be tempted by many of summer’s numerous treats and foods. It is important to remember that just because you are on vacation, your orthodontic treatment is not.

You should still refrain from eating things you would skip at home because they could cause problems with your braces or aligners. Yet this does not mean you cannot enjoy other things like ice cream, fresh soft fruits, burgers, or pizza!

To find out what other essentials you should pack for orthodontic care while on vacation, foods you can enjoy, foods you should skip, and tips for sticking to your orthodontic care routine, we invite you to continue reviewing the following infographic.
