How to Make an Orthodontic Dental Kit for Braces

When you are out and about, it's important to have the proper tools to keep your teeth and braces clean between meals. Many people like to make or buy a dental kit which they keep in their briefcase, backpack, car, or purse. Here are some suggestions for your dental kit. You can find all of these items in most drugstores:

  • A travel-sized or full-size toothbrush
  • Non-whitening mild toothpaste
  • A durable folding cup or a container for water
  • Dental floss and floss threaders, or special dental floss for braces
  • A small interproximal dental brush
  • Interdental picks
  • Dental wax
  • Advil or Tylenol
  • A small folding mirror

Finally, you'll need some sort of container to carry all this stuff around in. Plastic zipper bags work for a while, but they tend to fall apart over time. A better bet would be a small cosmetic bag, which you can find at almost any drugstore or variety store.

If you don't want to go to the trouble of assembling all this stuff by yourself, we have created a product called the DentaKit Braces Survival Kit, which already contains everything you need. I created this product when I had braces and needed a simple easy way to clean my braces after a restaurant meal.
