Portable Emergency Braces Kit

Dental Kit

As promised in my last Metal Mouth Diaries entry, I have put together a list of essential items that every brace-wearer should carry around with them in case of a metal mouth emergency!

Happily, all these items are small enough to fit in a little portable beauty bag or evening purse so you shouldn’t have too much trouble carting them around:

  • Orthodontic wax – to slap onto your brackets if your braces start to irritate the insides of your mouth.
  • A little travel pack of tissues – to dry your brackets so the wax will stay on. (I forgot to include this in the pic – oops!
  • A mini travel toothbrush – for mealtimes when you’ve got bright green spinach stuck between your teeth and braces.
  • An interdental brush – small enough to carry around and brilliant for reaching those hard-to-get places in between your braces that even a toothbrush can’t get to.
  • A small mirror – to be used discreetly to inspect your teeth when there are no available restrooms around to scurry off to.

Here’s to never having to worry about your braces in public!
