The correct choice of treatment for you will be a matter of your needs, and your priorities. We schedule consultations in a relaxed environment to assist you in your decisions. Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of carefully thought out treatment planning is the 'open ended treatment plan'.

Great Thanksgiving Dental Tips

Excited about Thanksgiving? We know we are! However, what we are not excited about is what all those sugary and fatty foods will do to our teeth. Most cookies and pies contain mountains of sugar, which has microbes that stick to our teeth and erode tooth enamel. Those sweet treats are not so sweet to our teeth. They present problems for those of us who want to enjoy Thanksgiving treats without wrecking our dental health.

As always, avoid sugary desserts as best as you can. If you are making desserts, then opt for recipes that require less sugar. You cannot control what other people bake into their own desserts, but you can definitely monitor what you put into your own foods. When eating other people’s desserts, eat smaller portions so as not to overload your teeth with sugar.

 
On Thanksgiving, you also need to pay attention to what you drink. Many families provide soft drinks, iced teas, and juices for their holiday feasts. Since you are already indulging in sugary desserts, then it is an even wiser idea to avoid sugar-overloaded drinks. Drink plenty of water instead. If you do choose tea or juice, then make sure they either have no sugar or very little sugar.

 
Desserts are not all you have to worry about on Thanksgiving. Foods high in carbohydrates like casseroles are bad for your teeth as well. Stick to foods high in protein like vegetables and fruits. However, be cautious when eating vegetables like candied yams. Tasty though they may be, they have more sugar than a simple yam would have. Avoid foods like these, or eat them in moderation.

 
As with any day, brush your teeth after meals and use mouthwash to ensure less sugar sticks to your teeth. Avoiding sugar altogether is tricky on Thanksgiving, but moderation and good dental habits minimize the damage any sugary foods and drinks may cause on that day. Most importantly of all — happy Thanksgiving, and remember to enjoy your holiday!
