Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends and food. For those with braces, it is also a time for caution. From eating sticky foods to chewing hard foods, there are several things you need to keep in mind so that Thanksgiving doesn't turn into a Thanksgiving nightmare.
Getting your teeth cleaned and examined by a dentist or dental hygienist every six months is recommended by the American Dental Association. This helps you prevent tooth decay and gum disease. However, it is also important to remember that regular professional cleanings only remove up to 80% of the plaque on your teeth. Brushing and flossing at home to remove the remaining plaque is imperative to your oral health. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind as you're preparing your Thanksgiving dinner!

"So fast and great with the kids!"
"Dr. Kathari did perfect work replacing a crown from start to finish. He used a precise amount of novacane, so that all drilling was pain free, yet I could drink coffee after leaving without numbness. Also, it was obvious that he made sure all work done was done right. Thank you! As for his assistant, Miss Whitner, she was very good in keeping everything good, thank you!"
"Always on time and prompt"
