Stressed about traveling now that you’ve invested in Invisalign trays? You don’t have to be. Continuing your dental health routine is easy when you have a plan in place for your Invisalign, and our simple guide is here to give you tips so that you can feel more at ease.   

Keep reading to learn three of our top methods to travel with Invisalign in Jupiter easily!   

Pack Your Next Set of Aligners  

On average, aligners are typically changed every two weeks for the best outcomes. Failing to do this can lengthen your timeline for straighter teeth.  

With this in mind, if you’re going on a long trip, make sure to pack your next set of aligners with you as well. That way, you won’t have to stress about setting yourself back while you’re enjoying your vacation!  

Consider Your Dental Health Essentials  

Beyond your next set of aligners, it’s also essential to create a small travel pack of dental health items so that you won’t have to interrupt your routine no matter where you are.   

Here are a few ideas to include in your pack:   

  • Travel toothpaste and toothbrush  
  • Dental floss  
  • Aligners   
  • Water   
  • Xylitol gum  
  • Mouthwash   

Xylitol gum is included because if you can’t brush your teeth after eating, chewing on gum can increase the saliva production in your mouth, helping to remove food debris and harmful bacteria faster. Mouthwash can also be an excellent alternative to gum if you’re not able to brush your teeth.   

You can also swish your mouth out with water and rinse your aligners before putting them back on. Remember to avoid sugary energy drinks and soda–especially when you’re not able to brush your teeth! 

Plan Ahead  

If you’re traveling to attend a holiday dinner or enjoy a work event, you may be stressed because you might have to take out your trays and put them on in the middle of the occasion.   

Instead, we recommend wearing your aligners for as long as possible, right up till the point when the event begins. Then, keep them off while you enjoy your time with friends, coworkers, and family.   

Consider Invisalign in Jupiter Today  

If you’re afraid that Invisalign can hamper the quality of your life, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll quickly become adjusted to your new dental health habits. However, it’s important that you speak with your orthodontist about what to expect.   

For instance, although you can take your trays off, you’ll need to wear them for at least 20 hours a day to get the best results.
