Can a toothache resolve naturally without intervention?

It’s possible your toothache may lessen or disappear, but this doesn’t mean the problem went away. In fact, the longer you wait, the more damage (and discomfort) you risk. Always seek help for a toothache (and avoid a bigger issue) right away.

What steps should I take in the event of tooth loss?

If your tooth is still in one piece, pick it up by the crown (don’t touch the root) and gently rinse it off under running water. Carefully place the tooth back into the socket and call us right away to let us know what happened. The sooner you seek treatment, the better your chances that we can save your tooth.
