February 9th is what has become known as National Toothache Day. And while we aren’t sure of the origin of this holiday, it’s definitely one we stand behind. Fort Wayne dentist, Dr. Todd Briscoe, wants all of his patients to see this day as a celebration of good oral health and a toothache-free mouth.
Nobody enjoys toothaches. And we definitely don’t want you to experience the pain and unpleasantness associated with them. In fact, toothaches can be avoided with a thorough at home oral care routine and by maintaining professional checkups and cleanings at your Fort Wayne dental office.
Tips for a Healthy Mouth:
Brush at least twice a day
Make sure to floss after brushing to remove what your toothbrush can’t reach
Avoid sugary/acidic foods and drinks
Don’t smoke or use tobacco products
Not only can following these tips keep toothaches away, they can also help keep your overall mouth healthy and are great for preventing gum disease, tooth loss, and cavities.
