Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what is important to each of us and what we have to be grateful for in our lives. At O’Connor Dental Care, Dr. O’Connor and Dr. Emily are thankful for the opportunity to provide quality dentistry to our patients and their families. We are also incredibly grateful to be able to work with such amazing patients and make them feel comfortable and relaxed while receiving treatment in our office. We hope your smiles are as important to you as they are to us, and we are thankful for the opportunity to provide you exceptional care.
Thanksgiving is also a time when we can consume up to 4,500 calories in a day while enjoying the delicious dinner with our friends and family. Here are a few tips to help keep your teeth healthy while enjoying the holiday!
1. Brush, Floss, and Rinse
2. Drink Water Throughout the Day
3. Be Aware of Foods that StainWatch out for foods such as cranberries and various types of pies like pecan pie. These types of foods can cause dark staining on your teeth. Since they are also sticky, they can leave a residue on your teeth which is difficult to remove.
