In case you lose one, you will always have a backup. It is also helpful to carry water bottles with you when you travel in case you are unable to find it in the area. After using your toothbrush, it should be left to dry entirely before keeping it in your backpack.
You can always use the dryer for the purpose in case you are running late. A wet toothbrush can catch bacteria and can make you sick. You do not want to get sick during your trip just because you did not have time to dry your toothbrush.
Another important tip by Dr. Cameron Clokie is to carry dental hygiene products such as dental floss and mouthwash when you travel. These products might not always be available at your hotel, so it is best to carry it with you.
It is always good to bring some sugar-free chewing gum with you that is great for your teeth. These help in cleansing your teeth even when you do not brush, this is a great option when going for walking trips to remote areas.
