Thanksgiving Dental Care

The leaves are changingof colour, the weather is getting cooler , and once again Thanksgiving is nearly here. As you gather with your family and friends for the Thanksgiving feast, we wish you laughter, joy, good food, and healthy oral care. To keep your teeth and gums healthy this long weekend, here are some tips to combat cavities while still allowing you to enjoy your grandmother’s pumpkin pie.

Healthy Thanksgiving Tips

Tip #1: Thanksgiving dinner is a sugary carbohydrate rich meal. From stuffing to rolls and cakes to pies, it is easy to binge out on these delicious foods. Try to balance the carb-heavy foods with protein and vegetables. It helps to counter the acid your mouth produces and reduces your risk of cavities.

Tip #2: Limit the amount of sticky foods you eat. These foods take longer to chew, and since they stay in your mouth longer, they increase your risk of cavities.

Tip #3: Try to avoid picking at food all day. It’s easy to spend the entire weekend eating, but even if it’s little things, it can cause a build-up of cavity causing acid in your mouth. Save the delicious food for meal time, and the leftovers for tomorrow.

In keeping with the feeling of Thanksgiving, our entire team at the Centre Dentaire LaSalle wanted to say how thankful we are for you, our patients. We feel so lucky to know each and every one of you, your loved ones, and to keep you and your smiles healthy.
