How to Prevent Toothaches

Posted .

Do you wish you knew how to prevent toothaches? If so, our Northridge Dental LLC dental team is happy to grant your wish! There are things you can do on a regular basis to keep your smile free from toothaches, and those things are:

Keep up on oral hygiene: Brush your teeth for two minutes every morning and every night. As you brush, make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The soft bristles will deeply clean your smile from toothache-causing particles and the fluoride will help strengthen your tooth enamel. After you’re done brushing at night, follow the routine with flossing and rinsing. When you floss, be careful along the gumline. When you rinse, use a beneficial product, like fluoride or antibacterial mouthwash.

Visit your dentist: There are many things that can cause a toothache, including tooth decay and enamel erosion. To prevent these things, you need to visit Dr. Timothy Dinkelman every six months. The treatment involved will deeply clean your smile and it will also strengthen your tooth enamel with fluoride. This will help keep the toothaches away.

Eat a healthy and balanced diet: Eating tooth-healthy foods will help you prevent pain and aches in your teeth, especially if you avoid eating sugary products as much as possible. Another cause of a toothache is food being stuck in your teeth. If this happens, don’t be afraid to remove the particle with dental floss.
