If you have a cavity or think you have a cavity, it is best to see a dentist as soon as possible. Dentists can determine which cavity treatment is best depending on the patient’s unique situation and the condition of the tooth decay. They can provide fillings, crowns, root canals, or tooth extraction to treat or remove damaged teeth and prevent decay from spreading. Fillings are the most common option for teeth that aren’t severely decayed from cavities.
What Does a Cavity Feel Like?
If you have tooth decay just on the surface of a tooth, you may not feel anything due to the nerve endings being near the tooth’s center. If the damage is deeper in the enamel, you may feel pain when eating or drinking. Cavities can have symptoms such as toothaches, tooth loss, infection, soreness, or sensitivity. They can cause toothaches that come and go when eating or drinking something hot, cold, or sweet, or remain consistent and uncomfortable at all times. Although it may be difficult to see a cavity, if a tooth is white, chalky, black, unusually rough, or slightly sharp around the hole, you should speak to a dentist immediately.
