Head Back to School Toothache Free!

Head Back to School Toothache Free!

With the pools closing, the weather cooling down, and the summer BBQs coming to an end, it’s time to start thinking about the fall season and all that comes with it. For a lot of us, the fall season means bonfires, football games, and heading back to school. Maybe a pumpkin spice latte or two… or twelve. With so much to look forward to during the new year, don’t let a toothache put a wrench in your first weeks of back to school plans.

Summertime = Fun Time

Sometimes, with all the excitement that comes with the summer months, dental care can fall to the waste side. When you stay up late or spend the night with a friend, you may be forgetting to brush and floss twice a day. According to Very Well Health, the main reason for a toothache is tooth decay from a lack of oral hygiene and upkeep. If you or one of your family members is experiencing a toothache, GPS Dental can help take care of the problem and get you ready for the fall season pain-free.

Dr. Gary Skrobanek and his team at GPS Dental in San Antonio will perform an examination of your mouth and may order X-rays to discover the toothache cause. From there, you may be prescribed pain medicine, or may need a cavity filled, or a root canal performed for more serious decay. The quicker we find the problem, the quicker we can fix it for you! To prevent further toothaches from happening, stick to a healthy diet and a routine oral hygiene program.
