Uncovering the Roots Behind National Toothache Day & Common Causes for Toothaches

Did you know that National Toothache Day is a real holiday? “Celebrated” every February 9, National Toothache Day shares the same day as the founding of Hershey Chocolate Corporation in the year 1894. The Feast of Saint Apollonia, the Christian patroness of dentistry, is also celebrated February 9.  Coincidence perhaps?

Toothache Day

Whatever the reason is behind the creation of National Toothache Day, today still serves as an important reminder to get your smile examined on a regular basis by a Smile Generation®-trusted dentist. Although we recommend at least two annual dental visits to maintain healthy smiles, studies still indicate that an alarming 15 percent of Americans would rather avoid going to the dentist entirely due to dental anxiety or fear. Such statistics are cause for worry as regular dental visits are necessary in order to help prevent gum disease and early tooth loss; going to the dentist regularly is also much more financially reasonable than having to deal with emergency dental treatments.

If you’ve been dealing with toothaches for a while now, then it’s definitely time to check-in with a Smile Generation-trusted dentist near you TODAY. Our trusted dentists and specialists use modern technology and are specially trained to provide you with an exceptional, comfortable and affordable dental experience.
