Get Ready for Summer Travel with Pre-Pasted Toothbrushes, Floss Packets, Retainer Wipes

Summer travel is just around the corner (not to mention summer camp!) Now is the time to stock up on dental care items you'll need for your carry-on or your suitcase. Whether you're in braces or retainers, we have a lot of great products that will help make your travel more convenient.

Pre-pasted toothbrushes are an easy way to stay on top of your oral hygiene when you're on the road. We carry several types:
Need to floss your braces? Don't forget to take along some packets of Glide Threader Floss, SturdyFloss or a few FlossFish! If you don't have braces, Dr. Ken's Floss Singles are individually packaged and fit anywhere (and you can use them with the FlossFish or the BridgeAid threader needle).

If you use a special mouthwash, we have spouted travel bottles which are relatively flat and pack easily. They come in two sizes: 2 ounce and 4 ounce.

If you wear retainers or Invisalign, then you should check out Cleanse. Freshen. Go. Cleansing Towelettes. These individually wrapped wipes help keep your retainer or aligner clean anywhere in just seconds. Just wipe your retainer with the towelette to kill germs. They're great for airplane travel! Or for a deeper cleaning, take along some Retainer Brite tablets, which are indivdually foil wrapped.

The thing I hated the most about traveling when I had braces was trying to find a way to rinse my mouth when I was a in public restroom. Our pop-up folding cup fills this need, and comes in a rainbow of colors. Or, you can treat yourself to one of our Braces Survival Kits, which include the folding cup and other great stuff.

Happy trails to you, wherever your summer travel will take you. I hope you flash a wide dazzling smile in your vacation pictures, confident that nothing yucky is stuck in your teeth!
