The Truth about Thanksgiving

When we think about Thanksgiving, we think of turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and of course the pies!  But did you know...

Fact:  Thanksgiving is actually a holiday that promotes great dental health!

The Two C's Celery and Carrots:
Both are fiber-rich vegetables that stimulate your gums.

Mashed Potatoes:
Potatoes actually do not stick on your teeth like other starchy foods.  They are packed with vitamins that are essential for good oral health.

Cranberries prevent oral bacterial growth on the teeth.

Turkey aids in the remineralization of the enamel.

Greens are loaded with vitamins and minerals which protect the gums from damage and promote healing.
