 In Braces

Embarking on a journey from Mesa, Chandler, or Queen Creek, AZ? Your orthodontic treatment from Garn & Mason should complement your adventure, not hinder it. Whether you’re exploring local attractions or venturing into the great outdoors, these traveling tips will help you uphold your braces or aligners, ensuring your treatment stays on track throughout your travels. 


Pack Your Orthodontic Essentials 

Before you set out to explore, make sure you’re equipped with your orthodontic essentials. Pack a toothbrush, orthodontic toothpaste, floss threaders, and orthodontic wax to handle any situation while you’re on the move. 


Opt for Orthodontic-Friendly Foods 

Indulging in the local cuisine? Choose braces-friendly options like softer foods and lean proteins. If you’re wearing aligners, remember to remove them before eating and give your teeth a thorough cleaning before putting them back in. 


Prioritize Oral Cleanliness On the Go 

Whether you’re discovering local gems or embarking on outdoor adventures, keep a travel-sized water flosser and interdental brushes handy to maintain cleanliness around your braces or aligners. 


Stay Hydrated for Optimal Oral Health 

Arizona’s climate calls for hydration. Stay refreshed by drinking water regularly and swish water around your mouth after meals to help dislodge food particles and maintain a clean mouth. 


Utilize Compact Mirrors for Quick Checks 

A small mirror can be your ally. Use it discreetly to inspect your braces or aligners for trapped food particles or to ensure your aligners are fitting comfortably. 


Address Orthodontic Discomfort on the Go 

Don’t let discomfort deter you from enjoying your journey. Carry a travel-sized container of orthodontic wax to address braces-related irritations and have over-the-counter pain relievers on hand for unexpected soreness.
