A woman about to chew a piece of sugarless gum to protect her oral health.Traveling can be stressful and can take a toll on our entire body. When you are set to take a trip, whether it is for business or for pleasure, you've likely got a lot on your mind, but make sure that you're not forgetting about your teeth. Keep these helpful tips in mind to ensure that your mouth stays healthy while you are on the road or in the air.

Keep Travel-Sized Tooth Care Items Handy

If you travel frequently, the chances that you'll forget something are pretty high, and most people find that their dental hygiene tools are what often get left behind. Keep a travel-size toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss in your suitcase so that you have it whenever you need it.

Take Some Probiotics

Airports are a hotbed for germs and contracting an illness, and while you are traveling, you will likely be exposed to these issues at a variety of other communal places. Splurging on probiotics can help to keep you healthy, as they are good for the gut and show benefits for overall health.

Carry a Pack of Sugar Free Gum

Having a pack of sugar-free gum available will keep your breath fresh while removing food and debris from your teeth. It can also be a good toothbrush alternative if you are in a bind and aren't able to brush immediately after a meal.

Postpone Your Trip if You Have a Toothache

If your tooth is beginning to hurt and you suspect that you might have a problem, reschedule your travel plans. There is nothing worse than having to deal with a dental emergency while you are out of town and away from your dentist's office. If you do have to travel, research possible emergency dental clinics near where you will be staying, and keep those phone numbers handy.
