Aside from Valentine’s Day, there is another special day we hope you celebrated at the beginning of the month — National Toothache Day. Nobody likes a toothache, so you may be wondering why we celebrate a day with this title. This day is not to celebrate the discomfort associated with a toothache, but rather to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining proper oral hygiene in order to avoid the dreaded toothache.
We hope that you are having an amazing summer spending time doing your favorite activities. With any activity, there is always the potential for an accident or emergency to happen. Even something as simple as a stumble or bump can cause damage to your teeth and mouth. A dental injury can range from something simple such as a bite on the tongue to something as severe as the loss of a tooth. The most important thing to do when dealing with any form of emergency is to remain calm and access the situation. We want to help you be prepared if you should encounter a dental emergency this summer.
