You look around the table and you see lots of options. Some of them seem healthy. Some of them are clearly not. Others, however, are confusing. While you know that proteins like the turkey and calcium-rich foods (such as a cheese plate) are great for oral health, you might wish for some sort of additional guidance. Your Moreno Valley dentist encourages you to eat bright orange and deep green foods this Thanksgiving! Learn more.
The Bright Orange Options
You won’t want to overlook the super vivid, holiday-color oranges on the table. Whether they’re quite dark and rich or a bit brighter and yellow-tinged, they might be just what the dentist ordered for great smile health. Your Moreno Valley dentist explains that such foods are a wonderful source of beta-carotene (it becomes vitamin A once you’ve ingested it). Why bother including pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, and more in your diet? Well, that vitamin A works wonders for your grin. Keep teeth strong and your mouth hydrated and smelling nice by getting enough of this vitamin. (Hint: Remember that these foods are beneficial in their purest possible form. Pumpkin pie and orange-hued cupcakes don’t qualify).
The Leafy Greens
You have probably heard a million times to eat dark green, leafy vegetables for your health. That’s because they’re typically packed with calcium (which is wonderful for your smile and bone health), iron, vitamin C, fiber, and the list goes on. They’re safe and good for your teeth and they’re exceptional for your overall health, explains your Moreno Valley dentist. So, fill up!
