A holiday platter fit for maintaining dental health
Updated: 12/21/2010 11:00:02 AM

Cheese and fruit may be the healthier option for holiday platters Instead of putting out an appetizer tray full of fried foods and salty treats, perhaps it may be better to provide holiday guests something a bit more healthier, especially for their teeth.

It's no secret that the holiday season can wreak havoc on a person's dental health, but there are ways to avoid doing any harm to one's teeth and gums. One way is to put out a health-conscious platter.

There are number of foods that have been deemed beneficial for one's dental health and it's easy to combine them all into one delicious platter.

Cheese is a low-carb food that can rebuild tooth enamel and has the ability to kill the bacteria in one's mouth that cause cavities and gum disease. So start here and have the middle of the platter decked out with various cheeses.

Next, line the outer rim of your platter with a selection of fruits (apples and strawberries are both good for gum tissue) as well as vegetables (carrots and broccoli have vitamin A and can help form tooth enamel).

While the platter should be tasty and healthy for teeth, people should be reminded that routine dental checkups are still key.
