We are mere days away from Thanksgiving, can you believe it? We can’t, which is why we put together a collection of grin-saving tips, just for the occasion.
1. Some Foods Are Worse For Your Teeth Than Others
It’s absolutely true. Cheers to carrots, cranberries and pumpkin, right? Stay away from obvious offenders, like sugary sweets or super starchy side dishes, but also do your best to think about how any given food or drink item might impact your pearly whites.
2. Keep Your Brush Close And (Your Floss) Closer
Bring a miniature toothbrush, toothpaste and floss set with you, if you aren’t going to be eating at your own home. Staying put? Schedule a break to brush and floss, after eating.
3. Drink Plenty Of Water
Not only will this keep you from getting dehydrated, it can also work to wash away potentially harmful food particles.
4. Plan Ahead
This is a good strategy to keep in mind throughout the entire holiday season, actually. Start your day off with a healthy, smile-boosting breakfast, limit your cocktail and soda consumption and eat plenty of vegetables. Do your best not to mindlessly snack, either!
Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful you stopped by.
