Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we would never suggest to skip the pumpkin pie and wine, it is important to remember that moderation is key with sugary foods and drinks.

What isn’t bad for your teeth on Thanksgiving? Well, Thanksgiving turkey for one! Turkey is a great food for oral health because it is rich in protein. Protein has phosphorus in it – and when the phosphorus mixes with calcium and vitamin D, it creates strong bones and teeth. So even though eating a Thanksgiving feast can make you sleepy, you can rest assured that turkey is a healthy option for a great smile.

Also, the veggie tray, load up your plate with vegetables, they are full of calcium so munching on crunchy foods such as celery and carrots is particularly helpful to your oral health.

 

Cavity-bacteria feasts off of sugar so try to limit your intake and make sure to drink a glass of water afterwards.

 Starch is very similar to sugar it can cause tooth decay and cavities.

 

There’s no need to cut out the yummy traditional Thanksgiving foods or drinks. Just limit the amount you eat and brush after the meal so you’ll have something to be thankful – good oral hygiene!
