Enjoying Thanksgiving While Protecting the Teeth

Miami, FL – 11/27/2019 – Tomorrow is Thanksgiving which means there will be lots of different food items to enjoy. While the holiday is about celebrating family and things one is thankful for, Thanksgiving food can affect oral health. With a couple of tips, it’s easy to keep the teeth healthy.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/27/2019 -- Reasonably enjoy cookies and cupcakes. These foods often have a high sugar content, which can cause bacteria and decay of the tooth. This applies to soda as well another Thanksgiving staple: eggnog. Caramel corn is a good little calorie holiday treat but the caramel may affix itself to the teeth and the kernels can lodge in the teeth and possibly pull out fillings.

This doesn't mean one shouldn't enjoy a couple of home-made cookies and cupcakes, it's all about moderation. One simple way to cut down on teeth damage is to drink plenty of water throughout the day, which will assist with washing away food contaminants and cutting down on the chances of developing bacteria.
