About National Toothache Day
This isn't a day to celebrate one of the worst forms of pain, but instead, it's a day to remind us that we can avoid toothache by paying attention to our dental hygiene.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and along the gumline.
Use an antiseptic mouthwash to kill bacteria and freshen your breath.
Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks, as they can contribute to tooth decay and erosion.
Drink plenty of water to help rinse away food particles and neutralize harmful acids.
Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles become frayed.
Avoid using tobacco products, as they can stain your teeth and increase your risk of oral cancer.
By following these simple tips, you can help maintain good dental hygiene and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
