It’s officially the last days of November, which means thanksgiving is around the corner and we will all be indulging in delicious home cooking and enjoying the company of family and friends.
Now, I'm sure you don't often think about oral health when basting a turkey, but did you know your favorite foods can impact your oral health?
Let's take a look.
According to a report from the American Academy of General Dentistry, eating cheese lowers risk of tooth decay and strengthens tooth enamel.
Apples increase saliva production which helps rinse away bacteria and food particles and stimulate your gums.
Almonds are packed full of calcium and protein and are low in sugar, a great combination for oral health!
Regardless of your food choices this holiday season, make sure to brush regularly, floss daily, and visit Provident Dentistry for our checkups and oral health needs!
