Caring for Braces on Vacation

When on vacation, fun in the sun and down time with your family and friends can overshadow taking care of your braces. However, maintaining strong oral health practices is the key to a lifetime of healthy smiles!

The team at Sunna Orthodontics have put together a list of must-have items for those with braces when you’re on vacation:

  • Floss Picks, proxabrushes or other interdental cleaners
  • Toothbrush
  • Orthodontic wax to cover poking wires
  • Travel sized-toothpaste and mouthwash

Packing these items together in a handy oral health kit is a great way to stay on top of oral hygiene when out of town!

Eating out can also be a common occasion when you’re on vacation; to avoid wire distortion and broken brackets, try to avoid the following and similar foods:

  • Hard candies
  • Chewing gum
  • Pop corn
  • Corn on the cob
  • Nuts
  • Chewy and sticky foods

Follow these steps for a vacation free of oral health worries! As always, if you have any questions about these tips, or have any other oral health questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call us at +962 6 593 6677 to speak to our knowledgeable staff, or visit us online at!
