National Toothache Day
Toothaches can be a real pain and many people will be shocked to hear that National Toothache Day exists. But don’t be alarmed. This is not a day to celebrate the fearful toothache. It’s not!
National Toothache Day is more about education and awareness. It is about helping people to learn how to prevent toothaches and how to treat them quickly.
It is essential that everyone learns how to care for their teeth. It is important to not only get rid of bad aches, but also prevent them from getting worse. National Toothache Day provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and promote oral health, share information, and motivate people with facts and information.
Toothaches can cause pain for the individual, as well as a burden on the health system and economies around the world. When it comes to maintaining your oral health and avoiding the dreaded toothaches, preventative care should be the primary focus.
Although it may feel like you are dying, most people will not be affected by a toothache. Too much tooth pain can lead to a serious infection. In rare cases, it could even cause death.
To be safe, you can avoid toothaches by practicing good oral hygiene. It’s a good habit to brush your teeth at least twice daily. Avoiding sugary sweets and sticky candy will help keep your teeth healthy and free from pain.
It is extremely important to observe this day on so many levels. There will not be any sugary candy or soda on this day. Here are some ideas to celebrate the occasion:
Regular visits to the dentist? Kudos! Maybe it has been a while. That’s okay! National Toothache Day is a great time to get motivated. The dentist will examine your mouth for cavities and other oral conditions such as gingivitis. The hygienist will most likely do a thorough clean. Ask them for tips to maintain a healthy mouth and avoid those awful toothaches.
According to dentists, the average person should replace their toothbrush every three to four weeks. National Toothache Day can be a great reminder to get a new toothbrush. Don’t forget to buy a new roll dental floss while you are there!
Toothache or pain is just one sign that something may be wrong. Bad breath, swelling, pain in the mouth, or sensitivity to cold or brown stains, can all be indicators that something is wrong. It is worth visiting the dentist to examine any of these signs before they get worse.
This day is a good opportunity to remind family, friends and coworkers that they are taking proper care of their oral health. Teachers might invite a dentist or dental hygienist into the classroom to give tips and tricks to the children about how to care for their teeth and gums.
You don’t have to bring that bag of sweet, sticky candy to work. Instead, you can bring some apples or baby carrots. They are healthier for your body and teeth. Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste handy if you absolutely have to eat sweets.
