Every year on February 9th, we commemorate National Toothache Day. And while having a toothache is no holiday, being toothache free is something we can definitely celebrate. The Douglasville dental office of Dr. Jim Williams likes to use National Toothache Day to remind all of our patients how to stay toothache free and why keeping up with your dental care is so important.
In fact, avoiding toothaches isn’t all that difficult, and it starts with a good dental hygiene protocol at home. By making sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day for a minimum of two minutes each time, and by flossing at least once a day, you’re already taking the first steps to being toothache free. Flossing and brushing away the day’s bacteria aids in keeping your pearly whites clean and germ free. And if your teeth are clean, there’s less chance for plaque and bacteria to get comfortable and start causing problems.
In addition to your at-home hygiene routine, keeping up with professional cleanings and checkups with Dr. Jim Williams in Douglasville is just as important for a toothache free mouth. Professional hygiene visits take your teeth to a whole new level of clean, and our hygienists work deep below the gum line to remove anything you may have missed. Your regular checkups are also a great time for Dr. Jim Williams to catch any potential problems before they turn into major issues.
If you are experiencing a toothache in Douglasville, don’t wait for the pain to pass. A toothache is your body’s way of telling you that something’s not quite right, and you should listen. Don’t live with the discomfort of a toothache. Give Dr. Jim Williams a call and we’ll work together to determine the cause of the pain and get you back to being toothache free and smiling.
