Next weekend, as your family celebrates Thanksgiving Day, it’s important to keep your oral health in mind. When preparing your holiday meal, include foods that are nutritious and beneficial for your teeth and gums. Turkey, Cheese, Greens and vegetables are packed with protein and phosphorous, Calcium, vitamins and minerals which are all good for health and strength of your teeth and gum.
Cranberry sauce which is a tasty Thanksgiving tradition, pumpkin pie and desserts are the sweetest part of our celebration. But you should consider that starchy foods are full of sugary carbohydrates, which build up bacteria in the mouth and can lead to cavities. Just make sure to have a few drinks of water afterward to wash away food debris from your mouth.
