Turron de Alicante

One of the biggest things that I love about Christmas time, is that certain foods became available.

One of my favorites is Turron de Alicante. This is a very Cuban/Spanish Christmas tradition. Turron is this hard almond nougat made of honey and almonds. It is absolutely delicious.

I remember that we would recognize that we were close to Christmas time because, all of a sudden, our kitchen cabinets were full of Turron.

We see this type of seasonal foods in a lot of different holidays. Here in the US, we see Egg Nog and fruit cakes sold during Christmas. At Thanksgiving, we see a spike with turkey sales. During Easter, people traditionally eat ham.

In dentistry, we see these traditions as well.

For example, a lot of people have their dental cleanings every 6 months. This is a tradition that was started some 60 years ago by a toothpaste company.

The company randomly picked this timeframe of every 6 months and all of a sudden, Americans began getting their teeth every 6 months.

Sometimes, coming in every 6 months is sufficient to keep a persons mouth and teeth clean and white. But a lot of the times, in order to keep the teeth and gums at a healthy condition, a more frequent cleaning schedule is required.

If you haven’t had your cleaning in a while and would like to get them looking white and feeling clean and smooth, please call 773-292-1911 or visit us at mydente.com to schedule an appointment.

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
