Who doesn’t love to travel? Traveling cannot only take you to breathtaking locations, but it can also give you the opportunity to immerse in a different culture. When people travel, they’re able to relax their minds and discover something new by wandering around as much as possible.
Traveling would require you to pack, this is why travelers would like to carry less stuff as much as possible, too.
You’ve heard of the Invisalign treatment— removable aligner trays that are portable and easy to carry around. Dentists recommend wearing it at least for 22 hours every day, but would it be possible even if you’re constantly traveling around?
Yes, it is. How do you conveniently travel with Invisalign aligners? The trays should be cleaned before putting them back in, so you’ll need access to clean water, as well as a travel kit to take everywhere
First and foremost, you need a little travel kit that contains:
Opt for a soft-bristled toothbrush which you can use for cleaning your trays. Additionally, it’s important to note that you always must brush your teeth before putting the aligner trays back in.
People tend to forget to floss, but as brushing your teeth does not entirely remove food particles (especially the ones stuck between your teeth), it’s important to always floss.
You may find yourself in situations where you’ll have to use a LOT of mouthwash when you have Invisalign aligners. This is because when you’re traveling, and you can’t always know for sure if you have clean drinking water to brush, floss, and rinse with, you can use mouthwash after meals, and then just do a more thorough brush once you have access to clean water.
The function of the Invisalign chewie is to eliminate the air space between the aligner and the teeth. The chewie provides a more comfortable and efficient method to get the aligners back into place.
In addition, you should always have your aligner case with you. When you take your aligner trays out, immediately place them in the case and not on a napkin or other surface where you might forget or throw them out. If you don’t have your trays while traveling, you might end up extending your treatment time.
They will help to keep your retainers clear and not cloudy. The best way to make sure your Invisalign trays are as clean as possible is to soak them in either a denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals. After they finish soaking, use an extra toothbrush that you don’t use for your teeth to brush off any lingering plaque or food particles.
Invisalign is a commitment that changes your lifestyle and affects a whole lot of things. But it doesn’t have to interfere with your travels! As you literally go places, you can also go places with the Invisalign treatment— by making it successful in life as you reap the benefits of getting a beautiful smile.
