Essential "accessories"

#1 Post by Gilafromspade » Fri Sep 29, 2017 7:50 pm

What do you carry with you during the day to help with your treatments? I'm starting Invisalsing soon and want to know what I should keep in mind aside from toothbrush/toothpaste.

when I am outside, I have...

Toothpaste
Toothbrush
Floss
Small bottle of mouthwash

At home, I use waterfloss on top of the normal routine and I have another softer brush to 'clean' the retainer...

I'm about 2/3 way through my trays. Here's what I carry in a small pouch every day:

- Mini tube of toothpaste
- Travel size toothbrush
- Floss
- Cleanse Fresh & Go
- Tiny bottle of hand sanitizer
