Tips for your teeth at Thanksgiving — and always

Thanksgiving is a moment for gratitude, so as we gather around the table, The Practice SF is thankful for all the new technologies we have for treating patients and helping them stay well.

There are two technologies, however, that are especially appropriate to visit during this important holiday.  And they’re the standby technologies.  Food and hygiene.

We came across a blog post from fellow dental professionals that does a great job of reminding us that we can use Thanksgiving as the starting point for healthy menus to enjoy year-round.  The Richmond  Smile Center Blog tells us why pumpkin, sweet potatoes, cranberries, green beans and cheese are health boosters.

And there’s no time like this season to make ourselves feel good about how we take of ourselves.  Our friends at Delta Dental share suggestions for how to manage the impact of all the sweets we’ll be enjoying during the holidays.  You may be surprised at what you read.

This season, we’re recommending that patients put themselves on the path to a healthy mouth by adopting healthy habits now.  No need to wait for the new year.

Happy Thanksgiving!
