Thanksgiving is almost here bringing delicious aromas and food within our fingertips. This Thanksgiving, remember that the foods you choose will impact your health, and your teeth. That is why it’s important to use these diet tips when it comes to eating any major meal or thanksgiving feast.

The diet tips and foods that should be included into your life include:

• Grains
• Fruits
• Vegetables
• Fat-free dairy foods
• Lean protein
• Drink lots of water

These foods will help keep your smile healthy, as well as your overall body healthy. If you stick to these foods during the main course of your meal, you can lower the amount of snacks you eat reducing cavities.

Did you know foods that lack certain nutrition nutrients make it harder for your gum tissue in your mouth to resist infections and gum disease? That is why it’s essential to eat well, and keep great oral habits. Healthy foods are not only good for your teeth; they are also good for the gumline and your overall health.

No matter what foods you choose to enjoy this harvest season, remember your brushing and flossing habits. This will help keep your smile clean and fresh throughout your life. If you have any questions or concerns about your oral needs, please contact your dentist. Let us guide you to a happy and healthy smile this Thanksgiving season.
