You can’t always prevent toothaches. Sometimes, they occur for reasons out of your control.
But there are things you can do to reduce your risk:
- Brush your teeth two to three times a day using a fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush;
- Floss between your teeth once a day, preferably before going to bed at night;
- Limit your intake of sugary foods and drinks.
- Visit your dentist regularly for exams and cleanings.
Ask your dentist about sealants and fluoride treatments.
