Looking for the best dental products to keep your smile white while traveling? Travel Noire’s got you covered!

As an adult, you only get one set of teeth. So, you want to make sure you have the right products to take care of them. Sure, a nice smile is a huge plus, but the benefits of solid oral hygiene aren’t just aesthetic.

That’s why you’ll need to pack the best dental products in your bag while you’re traveling. But that’s not all there is to it, of course!

According to Oral Health Foundation, “by brushing our teeth twice daily, maintaining a low-in-sugar diet, and regular visits to our dental professional, we can help reduce the risk of such diseases like dental decay and gum disease – both of which can result in tooth loss.” Daily flossing is also strongly recommended in between professional cleaning sessions. Moreover, research shows that caring for your teeth and gums can cut your chances of getting certain cancers and even dementia.

Consider purchasing these four dental products for your travel pouch.

Oral B Pro Electric Toothbrush

Research shows that electric toothbrushes do a more thorough job of cleaning teeth than regular toothbrushes.

There are many electric toothbrushes to choose from, but Oral B- Pro 1000 is both effective and reasonably priced. According to Amazon, it can remove “300% more plaque along the gum line than a manual toothbrush.” It’s also compatible with a range of toothbrush heads, including, “CrossAction, 3D White, Sensitive Clean, Precision Clean, FlossAction, Deep Sweep, Ortho, and Dual Clean.”

One user wrote, “never had a powered toothbrush, so did my research first and chose this one. Very pleased with the performance and the unit is well-built and designed. Time will tell exactly how long the rechargeable yet nonreplaceable battery lasts, but so far I’m quite pleased with product value.”

Another person, who admitted they had a tartar buildup issue, noticed a drastic improvement thanks to this product.

Glide Oral B Dental Floss

The Glide Oral B Dental Floss set includes six boxes.

Amazon explains, “the silky-smooth, shred-resistant texture slides more easily in tight spaces vs. regular floss. Oral-B is the #1 Dentist Recommended Floss Brand. Smile with confidence and feel the Glide difference!”

Users give this product high marks.

One person said, “this floss works really well and has a great taste. It is durable, and strong and cleans my teeth thoroughly. The price for 6 is such a great value.”

“I will never use another floss again,” wrote another. “My gums used to bleed because of the barbed wire that other flosses are made of. This floss is not a thread, it’s a very thin ribbon so it can slip under the gum line without irritating it. I LOVE flossing now and I haven’t bled in years. Will stockpile and pass it down to my children.

Listerine Mouthwash

Mouthwash is as crucial to oral health as brushing and flossing. Its benefits include tartar control, gingivitis prevention and keeping your mouth from smelling like a sewer.

This pack includes two large bottles. You can pour the contents into smaller ones for travel purposes. Users say that Listerine Mouthwash is fairly priced, makes the mouth feel fresh, and leaves a pleasant little tingle after you spit it out.

One person wrote, “been using Listerine for decades. If there’s a better mouthwash, I haven’t found it.”

Colgate Total Teeth Whitening Toothpaste

What kind of toothpaste should you get? Well, that depends. Do you want it with or without fluoride? Designed for more sensitive teeth? Herbal toothpaste? Charcoal? There are too many to name. But, if you’re hoping to remove or at least lessen the appearance of stains on your teeth, then Colgate Whitening Toothpaste is for you. With regular and consistent use, paired with dentist visits, you’ll be pleased with the results here.

One user wrote, “after reading a lot of reviews about whitening toothpaste I selected this, and am very pleased with the results. After less than 1 week of use, I’ve already noticed a difference in whitening. It also makes my teeth feel very clean, and the feeling lasts longer than my old toothpaste. Also, it’s a bargain to buy it from Amazon in the multiple packages.”
