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!
