Dental health is important to your overall health. If you don’t take care of your teeth and mouth, you may develop cavities or even tooth loss. Toothaches are often caused by tooth decay, an abscessed tooth, an earache, injury to the jaw or mouth, or sinusitis.
To maintain good dental health, use good oral hygiene. A low sugar diet is recommended along with regular flossing, brushing with fluoride toothpaste, and regular professional cleaning.
