There are several things which you can put into practice in order to save yourself from experiencing a toothache. Amongst all, these can be applied easily and can bring about positive results too.
BRUSH YOUR TEETH TWICE A DAY WITH FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE
The untreated cavities in our teeth grow bigger day by day. And as they grow large in size, they reach out to the pulp area. It is the area which has all the nerves and vessels embedded in it supplying the tooth. The irritation in the pulp can become unbearable and should be treated on the immediate basis. The best way is to re-mineralise those tooth areas so that the pulp remains out of their reach.
And how can you do it on your own? By adding fluoride toothpaste to your grocery list. Fluoride being a key ingredient can strengthen your teeth and put a stop to any toothaches experienced in future because of this particular reason.
EAT A HEALTHY DIET HAVING LOW SUGAR CONTENT
We all love the sugary stuff, munching on candies and chocolates every now and then. When depressed we reach out for an ice cream bucket or a full chocolate cake, don’t we? Despite knowing how harmful it can be for our teeth, we do not cut down sugars from our diet. When we take a sugary meal, the bacteria in our mouth become super active and secrete loads of acid. The acid in return is the one which begins the caries process. This is where the tooth decay begins from. So, in order to save your teeth from this, the rule is simple; cut down sugar contents.
GIVE YOUR ENAMEL (AND GUMS) A BREAK
Tooth enamel makes the outermost layer of our teeth and it is the strongest amongst all the layers. There is no doubt about it but it is also true that it needs some rest too. It is the toughest material in our body but at the same time, it is very much susceptible to breakage too.
How are we putting the tooth enamel in danger?
Well, with our daily routine habits we are making our enamels weak. Foods comprising of high acid contents, including fizzy drinks and citrus fruits as well, wear away the enamel of our teeth exposing the dentine which is more sensitive.
Moreover, grinding your teeth can erode away your enamel too. Some people do it out of habit while others do it while stressed out. Whatsoever the reason, if you are practicing it, time to keep a check on yourself.
The way you brush your teeth affects your gums. Going too hard and fast causes irritation in your gums and results in shrinking them exposing the dentine surface ultimately.
