Summer is a favorite time of year for those who love camping. And it’s still fun when you’re straightening your teeth! Here are some tips and tricks to camping with aligners!
Brush your Teeth: Camping Style
It is too easy to forget to brush your teeth while in the woods, but keeping your teeth sparkly-clean during aligner treatment is a must. Thankfully, the absence of a sink doesn’t have to keep you from brushing your teeth.
We suggest bringing a small travel-sized toothbrush (they usually come with their own handy protective case), floss, and mini toothpaste. Have a bottle of water handy for rinsing. Finishing your meal and brushing your teeth before nightfall will keep you from having to search for your toothbrush in the dark with your flashlight.
Keep the Next Set of Aligners in a Safe Place
You never know if something might happen to your aligners, so you may want to take the next set with you. Keep it in a hard case somewhere safe where you will know where to find it.
Remember, you can leave the aligners off for up to 4 hours total per day, so you can still take your time enjoying a cup of coffee by the campfire. Just make sure to brush your teeth and put your aligners back in when you’re done.
If you want to avoid the temptation of munching by the fire throughout the day, you can always take the opportunity to go for hikes, or go swimming!
