Dental Emergency FAQs

When trying to better understand the dos and don’ts of emergency dentistry, it can be overwhelming and confusing. This is why our emergency dentist in Aurora as well as our qualified team of experts have compiled answers to some of the most common questions asked by our patients. Below, individuals can find clarification on various topics and be encouraged to contact our team should they have additional questions. We understand we have not answered all inquiries here, which is why our team is ready to answer the call.

Will my toothache go away on its own?

Typically, toothaches do not go away on their own. It is usually an underlying problem that is causing the issue. This is why we strongly recommend that patients visit the dentist to ensure nothing is wrong. It’s best if we rule out any potential issues that may be causing the toothache, especially when looking to avoid more serious problems in the future. If the pain is deep within the tooth’s layer, there’s a good chance it is an infection that will require extensive treatment.

Can the emergency room remove a tooth?

It is illegal for anyone to remove a tooth who does not possess the proper education and training, even in a hospital. This is why we recommend patients visit our office because this type of dental emergency in Aurora is best treated by a licensed dental professional. In a hospital, only antibiotics and pain medications can be given, but the underlying problem can only be treated by a dentist. Also, unless evaluated by an oral healthcare expert, a person may undergo a tooth extraction but only need a root canal.

Do I need to visit for minor chips in teeth?

It’s important to know that minor chips do not heal on their own, so patients are better off scheduling an appointment quickly. Without timely treatment, the tooth can endure further damage. If there are jagged edges or the tooth is sharp, this can result in lacerations to a person’s tongue, cheeks, lip, or gums if not careful. Because there are many ways for a dentist to treat a chipped tooth, it’s best to inquire about an emergency appointment and learn which treatment method is right.

Should knocked-out teeth be placed in water?

No, it is better if knocked-out teeth are reinserted into the vacated socket. However, if this is not possible, patients should place the tooth in a container of milk. Rinsing the tooth of any debris is fine but holding it under water for an extended period can cause the root surface cells to become damaged, resulting in the tooth no longer being viable for reintegration. By placing it in milk, it’s possible to keep the tooth viable for up to one hour.
