3 Travel Tips for Good Dental Health

Summer is travel season for many families in Livonia and the Motor City. Heading up north and to our beautiful coasts are what we need to do to enjoy what Michigan offers. Trips to see grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles are also a fun way to start the vacation season. Many in the Metro Detroiters head to a variety of places around the Great Lakes for fun and enjoyable family time. No matter the destination or the length of the trip, the professional staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry urges everyone to remember to take care of their dental health while on the road.

Dr. Jim DeCapite reminds all traveling families of these three great tips for maintaining good dental health during the summer vacation season:

  • Pack a new toothbrush and plenty of floss: Along with the swimsuits, sunscreen, and comfortable walking shoes, remember to pack everyone’s toothbrush and floss. More importantly, with all the excitement of a road trip and seeing new places, make sure everyone in the family continues to brush and floss twice a day!
  • Get a professional dental cleaning before leaving: Summer travel preparations should include a stop at the dentist, so everyone in the family starts the trip with a healthy, clean mouth. A checkup can also find potential minor issues before they become big problems on the road. Contact us today to set an appointment to get the whole family ready to go on that exciting vacation.
  • Choose healthy food and beverages on the road: It can be tempting to live on a junk food diet when traveling. Enticing new treats are found at every diner and souvenir shop along the road. Take the time to make good choices, especially to have everyone drink lots of healthy, refreshing water while on family vacation.

The staff of DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry wants all our patients to enjoy a well-deserved family vacation this summer. Be sure to visit us before hitting the road! Our office is conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads. We accept new patients and, of course, all emergencies.
