Your Must Have, On-The-Go Dental Accessories
Ladies, it’s the last thing you reach for when you head out the door. It’s your lifeline, your emergency kit – it’s your purse. Inside resides those must-have items that get you through your day. There’s your wallet – with more lint than pocket change, family photos that really need to be updated, makeup for emergency touch-ups and the odd hairband. Your ever-present cell phone resides within easy reach so you can check your social media accounts, but do you really have what you need to maintain a polished smile when you’re out and about?
Pack Your Bags
A girl’s got to eat, but when lunch break involves those yummy garlic knots from your favorite Italian restaurant, or leafy greens that love to linger between your teeth, you need to be prepared! Pack your purse for dental emergencies and you’ll always put your best smile forward. Opt for:
- A travel-size toothbrush and toothpaste – It’ll keep your pearly whites looking their best and your breath ever so fresh.
- Not enough room for a mini toothbrush kit? How about tiny disposable teeth cleaners, like Colgate’s Wisps? These q-tip sized brushes pack a powerful punch for a quick touch-up, with just a hint of cleaning gel.
- Floss or flossers – Take a pass on toothpicks and get the job done right! Get between your teeth to remove the evidence. That poppy seed-garnished takeout was delish, but you’d rather everyone didn’t know it.
- Breathstrips or gum – All the breath benefits of mouthwash, without a big bottle cluttering your purse. Go for xylitol-sweetened options, which are actually good for your smile.
One of the best accessories in your purse is an appointment card for your next dental appointment! Your dazzling smile starts with regular dental checkups to keep it healthy and bright. Don’t have an appointment? Call SEDA today and schedule one.
