I will be attending a traditional extended family Thanksgiving meal this year, so many of you probably will be as well.
I have come to realize that one of the things I am truly thankful for is good dentition and a great dental team. Sounds silly, but I mean it. No dentures, no cavities, no major restorative work waiting for me down the road.
I think I’m going to shake things up a bit and bring numerous new toothbrushes, flossing devices and oral rinses to Thanksgiving this year. Rather than finding out what Aunt Doris did this past year, I am going to talk oral health. Remember, I am a dental geek.
Also, I’ll be able to remove any turkey residue that may be stuck in my dentition while I am AT my mother-in-lawâ€™s house.
Now I’m looking forward to a fresh mouth on that three-hour ride home. Why have I never thought of this before?!?!
