Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all the things we have, including our teeth. Thanksgiving dinner just isn’t the same if you have to gum it. Our teeth are one of the things that we don’t tend to think about until we lose a tooth or get a toothache, which always seems to happen while traveling.
Some people think that teeth are a lot of maintenance and cost for little return but without them we would be hard pressed to get the nutrition we need and the variety of foods that we crave. Be thankful for your teeth and make sure to give them the attention they deserve year round and not just when they hurt. Make sure to see your dentist and dental hygienist on a regular basis and take care of problems while they are small so you can continue to enjoy a great Thanksgiving dinner for many years to come.
