Good news! Preventing toothache is incredibly easy. All you must do is maintain a healthy dental hygiene routine. This includes proper brushing and flossing — at least twice-a-day — and attending your regularly scheduled dental checkups. If you do these two things, then you significantly decrease your chances for severe tooth pain.
If you are experiencing serious pain and/or pain over a very long period of time, or you are convinced you have a severe toothache, then contact your dentist immediately to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. Do not wait to fix your toothache.
