With Thanksgiving only 2 days away I thought it would be appropriate to blog about the role nutrition plays in having a healthy smile.
Proper nutrition is essential in maintaining a healthy smile. Often , improving your diet can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
When you prepare your Thanksgiving feast include different foods from these five major food groups.
- Milk – Great in mashed potatoes
- Meat – Turkey or ham
- Grains – Stuffing
- Vegetables – Yummy yams and green bean casserole
- Fruits – Cranberry sauce and delicious fruit salad
It’s super easy to have a delicious Thanksgiving dinner that is also good for your teeth.
Have a happy Thanksgiving and don’t forget to brush and floss!
