Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours in Aurora! We know everyone loves a good family dinner, but a traditional Thanksgiving spread requires a LOT of time and work to prepare. Between cooking the turkey, mashing the potatoes, and handling all of the other yummy foods your family loves to eat, the whole endeavor can be very overwhelming. While the main and side dishes all matter at your Thanksgiving dinner, dessert is definitely the part that kids look forward to the most. This year, consider giving yourself a break and ordering a pie for dessert from one of these local pie spots!
Remember it is very important to still maintain good oral hygiene with all the food and dessert intake. Thanksgiving is the holiday of eating and your teeth should still be properly cleaning after each meal. High intakes of sugar are not good for teeth and gums, we recommend limiting the amount of high sugar foods that you consume. It can help your teeth in the long run.
