How to prevent toothache


Simple as 123, through home and professional dental hygiene at the office (i.e. descaling on time) and through unprocessed food.


Proper gum cleansing helps you maintain your teeth for a long time.


Using interdental floss (floss or mini interdental brushes) and daily showering and reducing sweet or processed foods that are crunchy or sticky will save you from cavities and complications. Drink alkaline water, fruits and vegetables, fish and healthy protein.

Brush 30 minutes after each meal and pay close attention to brushing your teeth in the evening before bed.


Replace the brush every 2-3 months or when the brushes become flared.


Constantly use a mineralizing toothpaste or for sensitive teeth.


Avoid smoking and do a descaling when your dentist recommends it.

I mention this, because for each person, the time when descaling needs to be done differs. In some people with more acidic salivation or a predisposition to periodontitis or tartar deposition, descaling should be done even at 3 months, instead of 6 months or 1 year as in a healthy oral patient.


Any ignored toothache can cause complications, so clean your teeth efficiently and check your teeth on time!


Oral neglect and avoiding timely treatment not only affects your teeth, gums and supporting bone, but also the health of your body in general.


See you soon and without toothache!
