How to prevent toothache

Most people experience toothaches due to tooth decay; however, it can be prevented by following good oral hygiene habits. Good oral hygiene means brushing regularly with fluoride-containing toothpaste, flossing at least once daily, rinsing your mouth once or twice a day with an antiseptic mouthwash. Visiting your dentist nearby twice a year for professional cleaning is also mandatory. Also, you need to eat foods low in sugar, and remember to ask your dentist about sealants and fluoride applications. If your toothache is due to an accident or if you have received a blow on your face, contact our emergency dentist immediately.
