National Toothache Day 2024: February 9th is National Toothache Day, a good opportunity to remind people of the advantages and general significance of maintaining good oral hygiene. In scientific circles, toothaches, also known as odontalgia, are exactly what they sound like: pain from one or more teeth. It might be challenging to eat, sleep, or perhaps even talk when you have a toothache. Even though we shouldn’t celebrate them, we can all agree on how to put an end to them permanently.

The National Toothache Day History

Although the origins of National Toothache Day remain unclear, the unofficial holiday acts as a reminder to individuals that maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial to living a long, happy, and healthy life.

The history of the science that does address toothaches, however, is a little more extensive. Evidence for dentistry dates back to 7000 BC, making it one of the earliest medical specialties. Unfortunately, reports of tooth-related illnesses were not found until 5000 B.C.

By the eighteenth century, dentistry had developed into a more sophisticated and defined field. This field received a significant boost in importance when French surgeon Pierre Fauchard published his seminal work The Surgeon Dentist, a Treatise on Teeth, which outlined a thorough approach to dental care and treatment, including the use of dental fillings and the discovery that sugar was a primary cause of tooth decay.

A national representative organization of dentists committed to promoting high professional standards and scientific research as well as educating the public about the value of dental hygiene, the twenty-six dentists who gathered in Niagara Falls, New York in 1859 formed the American Dental Association, or ADA.

Colgate was the first company to mass-produce toothpaste in 1873. Soon after, toothbrushes were also mass-produced, ensuring that everyone had access to dental care supplies. However, until soldiers stationed overseas brought the idea of good dental hygiene back to their home country after World War II, good brushing habits were not common in America. Today, however, with the availability of teeth straightening, whitening, and many other procedures, people give their teeth the attention they deserve.
