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:
Cranberries prevent oral bacterial growth on the teeth.

Turkey:
Turkey aids in the remineralization of the enamel.

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