Toothaches are inconvenient and painful. If there were ways you could avoid toothaches, would you do them? If so, our VIP Smiles dental team has some helpful tips for you! In order to avoid toothaches in Syracuse, Utah, we encourage you to do the following things:

Keep up on oral hygiene: Brush your teeth for two minutes every morning and every night. As you brush, make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The soft bristles will deeply clean your smile from toothache-causing particles and the fluoride will help strengthen your tooth enamel. After you’re done brushing at night, follow the routine with flossing and rinsing. When you floss, be careful along the gumline. When you rinse, use a beneficial product, like fluoride or antibacterial mouthwash.

Visit your dentist: There are many things that can cause a toothache, including tooth decay and enamel erosion. To prevent these things, you need to visit Dr. Shad Ingram every six months. The treatment involved will deeply clean your smile and it will also strengthen your tooth enamel with fluoride. This will help keep the toothaches away.

Eat a healthy and balanced diet: Eating tooth-healthy foods will help you prevent pain and aches in your teeth, especially if you avoid eating sugary products as much as possible. Another cause of a toothache is food being stuck in your teeth. If this happens, don’t be afraid to remove the particle with dental floss.

Your dentist, Dr. Shad Ingram, and our dental team care about you and your smile, which is why we’re here to help you in any way we can. So, if you have any questions or if you would like to learn more about toothaches, please feel free to call our office today at 801-776-3000. We look forward to helping you!
