What Holiday Foods Could Be Harmful to My Teeth?

While historical records are spotty on the first Thanksgiving because only two firsthand accounts of the feast were ever written, it’s believed the feast most likely happened between September and November of 1621. The 53 Pilgrims in attendance were the only colonists to survive the long journey on the Mayflower and the first winter in the new world. They were joined by 90 Wampanoag Native Americans.

Some 400 years later, you and your family help keep the Thanksgiving tradition alive. Instead of the deer and lobster featured at the first Thanksgiving, your crew may be focused on turkey and some dishes that can be a bit more problematic for your teeth. And, of course, when looking ahead to Christmastime, the sugar factor can be through the roof.

Holiday foods are terrific in the eyes of many, but for the sake of your oral health, be careful during these final months of the year. Read on to be reminded of some tasty treats that your mouth needs to handle with care.
