If you want a successful and trouble-free orthodontic experience, it’s best to keep an orthodontic handbag with you at all times. In that handbag, our Comfort Dental Excellence team recommends keeping the following items inside:

· Orthodontic wax: Orthodontic wax is extremely helpful when your braces are bothering you, so it’s best to keep the wax with you throughout the day. All you’ll need to do is place the wax over the section that is troublesome and it should help instantly.

· Lip balm: Lip balm is a great item to have with you because your lips tend to chap when you have braces. Chapped lips are extremely annoying. So, to keep your lips nice and fresh throughout the day, just apply the lip balm whenever necessary.

· Orthodontic elastics: Elastics can successfully shift and change your teeth and bite, but they tend to break often, which is why it’s best to keep extras with you. When your elastic breaks during the day, just replace it with a new one and you’ll be set.

· Travel-sized oral hygiene tools: For the best smile possible, you need to brush and floss your teeth after each meal and snack. So, make sure you keep a small, travel-sized toothbrush, toothpaste, and flossing product of your choice in your bag.
