Thanksgiving Day is a time for getting together with family and friends as the chilly weather and Canadian autumnal foliage signal the start of winter. Kitchener Dentist Frederick Dental is grateful for the community’s trust and unwavering support. We want to arm you with the knowledge you need to enjoy this great day with a bright, healthy grin while still indulging in your favourite Thanksgiving treats.
Beware of Sweet Treats
Dessert spreads are typically associated with Thanksgiving. Sweets like candy, pies, and tarts may be hazardous for your dental health even though they are commonly ingested. Sugar and acid should be consumed in moderation to lessen any unwanted consequences. Don’t forget to rinse your mouth with water afterward.
Especially if you indulge in wine or other alcoholic beverages, drink lots of water. Water keeps you hydrated and aids in the removal of food particles and dental acids that may otherwise damage your enamel. If your water has been fluoridated, it can be pretty helpful.
Making Smart Choices
Every Thanksgiving meal should include a variety of veggies. As a natural toothbrush, carrots and other crunchy vegetables can be used. They encourage the mouth’s natural defence against cavities, saliva production.
Use Caution When Consuming Starchy Foods
Despite being delicious, starchy foods like bread and stuffing can result in cavities because they stay in the mouth and convert to sugar. To ease the discomfort, balance your diet by including lots of vegetables and protein.
Don’t forget to floss after a meal like Thanksgiving because food particles will undoubtedly get lodged between your teeth. Don’t forget to floss to get rid of any debris. In addition to helping you avoid cavities and gum disease, this will keep your breath fresh.
Free of Sucralose Gum
After a meal, chewing sugar-free gum could be good. By creating more saliva, the mouth naturally cleans itself and balances the acids from food and drink.
Remember that a moment of indulgence does not have to lead to a lifetime of dental problems when you spend Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones and enjoy the joy of delicious meals. You may enjoy the festivities while maintaining your teeth’s health and whiteness by exercising good judgment and practicing good dental hygiene.
