Make Cleaning Braces or Aligners on the Go A Breeze
If you have braces or aligners on your teeth, you know just how difficult it can be to keep them clean 24/7. This is especially difficult after you have eaten something. When you are at home, you can easily get what you need to clean your teeth, but this isn’t always the case when you are on the go. Thankfully, there are some portable essentials that you can easily store in your bag or pocket that make cleaning teeth with braces or aligners much easier for you.
Floss With Threaders
One of the most essential items you can easily carry around with you is floss with threaders attached onto them. These threaders make it easy to get above and below each bracket and between all of your teeth. This can remove hard to reach food particles that would otherwise be stuck in your teeth all day. Also, because you can purchase these threaders in small packets of 1-3, they are super easy to carry around.
A Small, Foldable Mirror
Another portable essential to have on hand is a small, foldable mirror. When you need to discreetly check out your teeth, you can pull out your small mirror, flip it open, and make sure they are nice and clean. This is quick and easy and makes it so that you don’t have to try and find a bathroom in order to check your teeth.
Portable Toothbrush And Toothpaste
Last, but certainly not least, you should carry a portable toothbrush and toothpaste tube around with you at all times. These toothbrushes are often about half the size of a regular toothbrush and come with a small lid to keep the head of the toothbrush clean. This gives you the option to brush your teeth at any given time, which is generally after each meal when you have braces.
These items are huge lifesavers and can make all of the difference in the world when it comes to keeping your teeth clean with braces or aligners.
