Pack Your Toothbrush

Did you ever notice how a toothbrush seems to be on the very short list of things to take when you travel? Did you ever ponder why that might be?

It’s obviously a good idea. Oral hygiene—proper brushing and flossing—should be a habit. Every day, twice a day, even when you’re away from home, it’s critical to keep your teeth and gums in top condition. And that daily habit, including your trusty toothbrush, might be a way to keep you connected with home. Maybe that’s why your mom always reminds you to take your toothbrush.

Another reason to pack your toothbrush is that you don’t want to have bad breath when you’re away from home. Most likely, you are traveling to connect with other people, such as friends and family on a vacation, or clients and colleagues on a business trip. Either way, you want to be at your best with shiny teeth and sweet breath.

Oral care is so important, it’s wise to make arrangements for refreshing your mouth a couple of times during the day. You can prepare a small travel kit to keep at work for mid-day brush-ups. Maybe as you take a few minutes in the restroom after lunch to care for your mouth, you can inspire your co-workers to adopt your healthy habits, too.

As you pack your toothbrush, don’t forget your floss, a travel-sized tube of toothpaste and your favorite AO ProVantage dental antioxidant product. The antioxidants in AO ProVantage have been shown to counteract the free radicals that cause inflammation and damage to oral tissues caused by alcohol, nicotine and all sorts of other substances. You can apply a pea-sized dollop of the AO ProVantage dental gel any time, any place. Or use the AO Pro Rinse when you’re someplace you can, ahem, spit. And if you smoke, you owe it to yourself and everyone around you to rinse with AO ProVantage BLAST, specially formulated to deactivate odor-causing compounds in the mouth as it counteracts the nicotine that leads to free radicals and tissue damage.

By the way, we also offer a 15 ml size of AO ProVantage dental gel that is just the right size for traveling.

Once you’ve packed your toothpaste and floss, your AO ProVantage oral antioxidant products—and your toothbrush—you’re all set! Bon voyage!
