Ouch! Is it a Tooth Ache? Find Simple Tips to Address It!

“Nothing can be more nightmarish than toothaches,” say those who experienced it. If you’re not tooth friendly, a toothache can be very close to you. On the other hand, good dental care not only blesses you with healthy teeth, but overall good health and a pearly smile too.

Dental and oral care are primary factors for maintaining overall health, but unfortunately the least attended to, by most people.


Protection is the best way to avoid tooth aches which are caused by various factors like:


Tooth decay - caused by cavities due to food debris left on your teeth.


Infected gums - caused by bacterial growth that may lead to tooth loss, if not treated.


A damaged filling - temporary or damaged filling can cause more harm than protection.


Abscessed tooth - a throbbing or sharp pain are common symptoms of an abscessed tooth


Tooth fracture - caused by a fall or an accident


Repetitive motions - such as chewing gum or grinding teeth

Dental care tips for a healthy smile:


Regular brushing and flossing provide best protection against tooth decay and gum problems

Avoid sugary drinks, starchy & processed foods and candy

Tooth-friendly diet (citrus fruits, dairy products and vegetables) can keep your gums healthy. Many nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin D, calcium and others, are essential to oral health.

Avoid frequent coffee, tea and red wine.

Drink plenty of water to wash away the food debris left on your teeth

Teeth with root canals or fillings are often weakened. Don’t bite on hard food that will crack your tooth.

Go for a periodic dental checkup to prevent any caries, cavities, plaque formation and gum diseases if any.

Avoid plaque build-up by eating unhealthy foods not lack of oral hygiene

Consume omega-3 fatty acid foods such as fish oil and flax seeds – fight inflammation and infection

Do not go to bed eating sweets without brushing your teeth.

Chew on sugar-free gums

Stop smoking, tobacco chewing.

Brush your teeth before going to bed

Get rid of nasty aches but also stop them from coming back or turning into more chronic conditions, with dental care and regular dental check-ups.
