National Toothache Day

February 09, 2023

February 9th is National Toothache Day. Did you know tooth decay is the primary cause of most toothaches in children and adults.  

Other causes of a toothache can include:

  • Food and debris stuck between your teeth or gums.
  • Inflammation or infection in the tooth or gums.
  • Trauma to the tooth, including injury, fracture or from grinding your teeth.
  • Children may experience some discomfort when a new tooth erupts through the gums, such as when a permanent tooth is coming in to replace a baby tooth that has fallen out.
  • Sometimes a sinus infection can cause pain in your upper teeth.

In many cases, a toothache often requires treatment by your dentist to be resolved so please give your Park Dental practice a call right away! Your dentist will be able to examine the tooth that is causing you discomfort and create a treatment plan.

Until we can see you, below are a few at-home solutions you can try to help minimize any discomfort.

  • Try gently rinsing your mouth with warm water and use dental floss to dislodge any food particles that may be wedged between your teeth.
  • An over-the-counter pain reliever may help dull the ache. Always follow the package dosing instructions. For small children, it’s best to consult their pediatrician before giving any medication.
  • If the toothache is caused by trauma to the tooth, applying a cool compress to the outside of your cheek may help reduce swelling and pain.

The best way to prevent a toothache is to practice good oral hygiene habits.

  • Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Visit your Park Dental Dentist twice a year for a dental cleaning.
