Thanksgiving Tips for Our Orthodontic Patients!

Thanksgiving is almost here! We know that each of our patients have so much to be thankful for – friends, family, and of course their hard work towards a beautiful and healthy smile! At Windermere Orthodontics, we want you to enjoy the Thanksgiving festivities, including the feast! Here are a few guidelines to make sure you enjoy a safe holiday dinner:

If you wear Invisalign aligners, be sure to remove your aligners and put them in their case just before meal time. Enjoy your dinner and be sure to brush and floss before putting your aligners back in!

For our patients who wear braces, there are many foods you can enjoy! Be sure to stay clear of anything hard or sticky. Items you can enjoy include:

– Turkey or ham (cut into bit-size pieces, removed from the bone)
– Stuffing/Dressing
– Mashed potatoes
– Sweet potatoes
– Gravy
– Steamed veggies
– Soft casseroles
– Jello
– Pumpkin pie
– Whip cream

After you enjoy your delicious meal, be sure to brush and floss thoroughly to make sure your braces are clear of any leftovers!

At Windermere Orthodontics, we are thankful for all our wonderful patients in Suwanee, Cumming, and the surrounding areas. We wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
