Dental Decay 101: What Causes Cavities?
Why Do Some People Have More Cavities than Others?
Treatment for Cavities: it’s important to remove decay and restore the damaged tooth ASAP. Repairing teeth while decay is small is easier and less expensive than allowing the decay to enlarge. After decay progresses to a certain point, a filling can’t treat the tooth adequately any more. It will need either a root canal or extraction.
Untreated Cavities Lead to Dental Infections
Treatment for Dental Infection: antibiotic therapy followed immediately by either a root canal or an extraction of the infected tooth.
