Traveling with a family member who is in braces can present a challenge. Try to be prepared with your own “orthodontic emergency kit”.                        We suggest you pack some (or all) of the following:

  • Toothpick, flosspick, or other interdental cleaners
  • Travel toothbrush
  • A mini bottle of mouth rinse
  • Orthodontic wax to help with discomfort from protruding wires
  • A small mirror for examining any possible issues in your mouth

Remember to avoid the following foods to prevent broken brackets and/or wire distortion while you are on vacation:

  • Chewing Gum!
  • Chewy, sticky, or gummy food
  • Apples, pears, and other whole fruits (cut fruit into wedges before consuming)
  • Bagels and hard rolls
  • Hard candies, cookies or pretzels
  • All varieties of nuts, including peanuts, almonds, and cashews – this includes candy with peanuts

Follow these tips and you can focus on having a good vacation! Please call Dr. Briscoe if you have any questions.
