Tips for Traveling With Invisalign

One of the biggest reasons that Invisalign aligners are so popular is their incredible convenience. Unlike traditional braces, you can use them to straighten your smile without any additional dietary restraints to worry about.

However, the fact that Invisalign aligners are removable can also present challenges, especially when traveling. If you have a summer vacation coming up, here are some things to keep in mind when traveling with Invisalign.

Take Your Case

One of the biggest hazards when you’re on vacation is losing your Invisalign aligners somewhere far from home. If you leave them at a restaurant or accidentally throw them away, it may be impossible to get them back.

If you don’t already have one, you should get a carrying case for your trays that you put them into during meals. That reduces the chance that you’ll accidentally throw them away or lose them somewhere. You can even get a cute, customized case that fits your style!

Bring a Backup

If you do wind up losing your aligners, it’ll be much harder for you to get a replacement if you’re out of town. If you’re going on a long trip, you may want to ask your dentist for a set of replacement aligners just in case.

If you can’t get a pair, you might want to take a set of previous aligners that you still have. While not the most useful, it’s better than nothing if you wind up losing your trays.

Keep them Clean

As always, you should make sure that your aligners stay clean. That can be a little bit more of a challenge when you’re on the go, so if you don’t have one already you should put together a travel cleaning kit to ensure that you’re always prepared.

You can find these at any pharmacy, or you can put together your own from your favorite dental products.
