DentalPlans.com Helps Americans Indulge This Thanksgiving Without Ruining Smiles
Thanksgiving dinner favorites are delicious, though sometimes, unfortunately, the foods we love are bad for our teeth. But the holiday doesn't have to be a dental disaster. DentalPlans.com, a leading online marketplace for dental savings plans, is sharing advice on which popular Thanksgiving dishes support healthy smiles and how to safely enjoy the not-so-healthy bites too.

Don't want to skip any of your favorites? Here's what to do.
"Pay close attention to your dental hygiene before the holidays. A healthy mouth is able to withstand a few Thanksgiving indulgences," said Jenn Stoll, chief commercial officer at DentalPlans.com. "No matter how great your at-home oral care routine is, everyone needs regular dental check-ups and cleanings to maintain good oral and overall health."
Rinsing your mouth with plain water after eating sugary foods, and then brushing and flossing as soon as you can, is a great way to keep sweet dishes from hurting your teeth. And if you're eating or drinking acidic items, rinse with water afterwards but be sure to delay brushing for an hour. Acidic foods soften dental enamel, and waiting before brushing gives your dental enamel a little time to harden again.
If budget has kept you from seeing the dentist regularly, a dental savings plan can give you discounts of 10-60% off on routine care, such as check-ups and cleanings, and restorative care, like after you bite too hard into that candy apple and chip a tooth. Make time before the holidays to take care of yourself and your smile. Learn more about dental savings plans here.
