February 9th is National Toothache Day
Did you know there is a national day dedicated to toothache pain? No kidding! February 9th is National Toothache Day! While having a toothache is no cause for celebration, being toothache free is something to be commemorated. Palm Harbor Premier Dental would like to use National Toothache Day to remind all of our patients the importance of staying on top of your dental care and how to stay toothache free!
Toothaches are painful and unpleasant. Simply put, they are just no fun. It should be a priority to stay on top of your home dental routine to minimize the risk of developing dental problems that cause toothaches. Avoiding toothaches starts with a proper dental hygiene routine at home. Be sure to brush properly for at least 2 minutes twice daily and floss everyday. Along with a rigorous home hygiene routine, keeping your regular, professional cleanings and checkups is just as important to keep painful toothaches at bay.
Tips to Remaining Toothache Free on National Toothache Day & All Year Long:
- Brush at least twice a day
- Floss at least once a day
- Avoid sugary / acidic foods and drinks
- Avoid the use of tobacco products
- Keep up with dental checkups & cleanings
