National Toothache Day: Holiday is nothing to smile about
When it comes to holidays, February 9 has a little something for everyone. Not only is it National Bagel Day (which means free bagels across the U.S.A), the relaxing Read in the Bathtub and the delicious National Pizza Pie Day, it is also National Toothache Day!
While the origins of this annual "holiday" are unknown, today just happens to be the same day Hershey Chocolate Corporation was founded back in 1894. Coincidence perhaps?
If you have ever had the misfortune of suffering from a toothache, it can be an excruciatingly painful experience. National Toothache Day serves as an important reminder to get those pearly whites checked out by your dentist to keep those toothaches at bay. Whether it's for a regular cleaning, brightening or annual exam, today is the perfect day to pick up the phone and make an appointment with your dental professional. And while you're at it, why not pick up a new toothbrush for the family too? Smile!
And with the sweet Valentine's Day holiday coming up...... Just in case you ever need it, check out these natural remedies for toothache pain.
