On-the-Go Oral Hygiene Hacks: Keep Your Braces or Aligners Sparkling Clean Anywhere!

Embracing the beauty of Redmond and Duvall, WA, is a pleasure, and maintaining your orthodontic treatment from Bruner Orthodontics should be just as enjoyable. Whether you're exploring local trails or savoring the Pacific Northwest charm, these on-the-go oral hygiene hacks will help you keep your braces or aligners in impeccable condition, no matter where your adventures lead you. 


Prepare Your Travel-Friendly Oral Hygiene Kit 

Before setting off to explore Redmond and Duvall, make sure you're equipped with a convenient oral hygiene kit. Include a compact toothbrush, orthodontic toothpaste, floss threaders, and a portable mirror for quick touch-ups. 


Swift Cleaning After Every Meal 

Indulging in the local cuisine? Keep a travel-sized floss or interdental brush with you to tackle food particles stuck around brackets or aligners after meals. Quick cleanings can prevent potential issues. 


Master Discreet Cleaning Techniques 

Whether you're wandering the forests or experiencing local attractions, find private moments to clean your braces or aligners. A portable flosser or interdental brush can efficiently clear debris from tight spaces. 


Stay Hydrated for Optimal Oral Health 

The Pacific Northwest's climate calls for hydration. Sip water throughout the day to maintain oral freshness and swish water after eating to cleanse your mouth when brushing isn't feasible. 


Embrace Compact Mirrors for Quick Checks 

A small mirror is an invaluable tool. Use it discreetly to inspect your braces or aligners for trapped food particles or to ensure your aligners are fitting comfortably. 


Address Orthodontic Discomfort with Ease 

Don't let discomfort deter you. Carry a small container of orthodontic wax for braces-related irritations and over-the-counter pain relievers for unexpected soreness. 


Stay Aligned with Routine Check-ups 

If your adventures take you away from Redmond and Duvall for an extended period, consider scheduling periodic check-ups at Bruner Orthodontics. Our experts can monitor your progress and provide guidance to ensure your braces or aligners stay on track.
