Braces-Friendly Thanksgiving Recipe

Braces-Friendly Thanksgiving Food

Our team at KCC Orthodontics can’t wait for Thanksgiving next week! We’ll be taking time to reflect on our appreciation for our many blessings. Thanksgiving is also our opportunity to share memories with friends and family and eat our favorite foods. Good news! Traditionally, Thanksgiving food is already braces-friendly!

With braces, you’ll want to eat foods that are soft – turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry, stuffing, and gravy. In addition, watch out for any hard foods that may bend your wire or break brackets or appliances.

Psst… if you’re wearing Invisalign, you are free to eat all the Thanksgiving foods! Be sure to remove your aligners when eating.

For a good braces-friendly recipe, this is one of our team’s favorites. This recipe uses all the Thanksgiving staples we mentioned above. Also, it makes a perfect dish for leftovers! This recipe is great for you if you are in braces and it is kind to sore teeth!

Braces-Friendly Thanksgiving Recipe

Ingredients:

1 can (or tube) of crescent rolls

¾ cup turkey – cooked & shredded

¾ cup stuffing

¾ cup mashed potatoes

1 cup of cranberry sauce

¼ cup warm gravy (will be for serving)

Directions:

  1. Turn the oven on to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Roll out crescent rolls & fill with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. A spoonful of each ingredient will do!
  4. Roll the crescent rolls up (or fold over edges if that’s easier).
  5. Arrange on baking sheet & bake for 12-15 minutes until golden
  6. When serving, provide gravy to dip the roll in

What a simple recipe! We hope you enjoy this meal as much as your time spent with those you love! You may store these Thanksgiving crescent rolls in the fridge for a few days. To reheat, use the microwave or conventional oven.

The Katy ClearChoice Orthodontics team is so thankful for you and hopes you enjoy this recipe, along with your time with loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving, KCC Ortho family!

Dr. Gutierrez Fun Facts

🙋 How do I know if my child needs orthodontic treatment?

Short Answer: You may not be able to tell on your own. Come in and see us for a free consultation!

Long Answer: It is usually difficult for you to determine whether treatment is necessary because many problems can occur even though the front teeth look straight. Also, some problems that look intimidating and complex will resolve on their own.

While your general dentist may be able to provide generic info, we are your best resource! Our initial exam is comprehensive and informative. Dr. Gutierrez will use x-rays and photos to complement his exam. He would be happy to see you and your child for an evaluation and make any recommendations necessary.

"Integrity is the glue that holds our way of life together." - Billy Graham

If there are people close in your life acting in a way you don't agree with, don't go along with them. If your gut is saying you're surrounding yourself with the wrong crowd, change who you spend your time with.

If anyone asks you to do something out of line with your morals, values, is illegal or simply irresponsible, RUN away! Get out of that situation!

Be careful: Bad companions can affect good people, even a good person like you.

"Bad company corrupts good character." 1 Corinthians 15:33 NIV

Wisdom for your Monday! 💙 Have a blessed day, KCC fam.

Did you know it’s Orthodontic Health Month?

Yup, the same month that is dedicated to costumes, candy, and pumpkin. 🎃

This month we strive to educate YOU on orthodontic health.

Orthodontics is the treatment of irregularities in the teeth. Many people believe orthodontics is strictly a cosmetic treatment. This is a myth!

It is important to understand that orthodontics can benefit the longevity of your teeth. Ortho health limits possible future dental work and gives you a beautiful smile.

Orthodontics benefits your physical and dental health.

For more information on ortho health and how you can celebrate this with your family this month, check out our latest blog post! 🔗 LINK IN BIO!
