Want to know how to maintain dental health while on the road? Traveling is rife with pitfalls that can damage your teeth, and even mouth and gums.

Snacks and quick foods are often a necessity while traveling. Healthy snacking can keep your teeth bright, help with dental care and keep you out of the chair of our dentist. Replace fruit juice and soda pop with water and cut down on the convenience store candy and sweets. This will help limit bacteria growth until you’re able to take the time to brush and floss your teeth.

Brushing and flossing while traveling is just as important while traveling as it is at home. While it may be difficult to find the time and place, Dr. Novan Nguyen urges his patients to keep up with their daily hygiene habits. During breaks and at night, rinse, brush and floss where and when you can, and keep your teeth healthy no matter where you go!

Don’t risk your dental health while on the road. If you have questions about how to take care of your teeth, or about traveling with dental restorations, call 209-952-9290 and meet with our dentist in Stockton, California. Discuss your concerns with Dr. Novan Nguyen and keep your teeth safe, no matter where you are!
