Summer Packing List For Those With Braces

It’s that time again; SUMMER is here. For many of our patients, Summer is a popular time to take a vacation and escape the responsibilities and routine of every day normal life. As we encourage you to take some well-deserved time away and hit the beach, we want you to remember to stay responsible for your braces while you’re traveling.

Be sure to pack more than the essential tooth brush and floss if you wear braces! Check out our tips below for those of you wearing clear aligners & traditional braces

If you wear Invisalign clear aligners, be sure to remember:
  • Always take your previous set of aligners, your current set, and your next set of aligners with you.
  • Always carry your aligners in your purse or carry-on luggage when flying.
  • Take an extra case. 
  • Make sure you rinse out your mouth and aligners before reinserting into your mouth if brushing is inconvenient. 
If you wear traditional braces, be sure to pack the follow:
  • Orthodontic wax
  • Floss & threader
  • Proxy brush
  • Rubber bands (if required)
  • Ibuprofen
We hope these tips help you while you’re traveling this Summer. If you have any questions or concerns while you are traveling please give Hinesly Orthodontics a call. Wishing you all safe travels!
