I don't agree with the bottom answer. To make it simple, you can view cavities in two ways. If they appear on the surface of the tooth, any dentist can see it directly with his or her own eyes.
But if the cavity is between two teeth, or under a filling, the cavity can only be seen on an x-ray. All dentists should be equipped with dental x-rays. And knowing where the cavity is, a dentist drills to get to it. He can't. You might need to go to another dentist, that way it will be done correctly. Good luck to you:)
No. You need to see the dentist for a filling.
You may not be able to see the cavity--the dentist often uses magnifying glasses and a pick--in addition to xrays--to see them. Make an appointment to visit the dentist.
Some pharmacies sell a temporary filling material that may relieve some discomfort until you can see a dentist. It is only temporary, and it does nothing to stop decay or infection. If you do not see a dentist soon, you run the risk of needing a root canal or even possibly losing the tooth.
No. A cavity is A permanent hole in your teeth. I suggest if you do have one, go see your dentist right away. The cavity will become more noticeable the longer you wait.
No that is not okay, its like saying let me drill through your foundation to see if there is a leak!
Get ora gel, it works great, but I would get in to see your dentist, you could have a hair line crack, or a cavity

go to the dentist and see what they can do because you cant do any thing.

A hole is a cavity, it means that the tooth is rotten or rotted. If you see a hole it is past time to see the dentist. You should also be brushing more often.
if it is a baby tooth I'd have it taken out if it was an adult go to your dentist and see what he says otherwise pull it out
Of course it is better to fill it immediately and stop any further damage to the tooth. Why would you wait? So the cavity can get bigger? So the whole tooth rots away so you don't have to fill it?
A Tooth AcheAnswerYou could have a sensitive tooth, cavity or possibly an abscess. I would make an appointment to see your dentist.
It will help remove infections but will not cure the cavity itself. You'll need see the dentist to have the decay removed and filled.
As long as you are willing to follow their protocols (ie fill out new patient paperwork, allow the dentist to conduct his own exam, and you agree to pay the fee) there is no reason why any dentist would not want to treat you.
It means that might have a small hole in your tooth with the filling ( which might not be visible.) you will have to go to the dentist again to see if the cavity has continued to grow in your gum or tooth.
Some signs of a cavity are some bad toothaches. You might also see a small hole start to form. Yellow will surround that hole. If you have one or start to have go see a dentist IMMIDIATLY! You'll get silver teeth filling and look nice.
No, there is no way to get rid of a cavity other than going to a dentist. There are ways to help the pain temporarily if it's needed, but only a dentist can remove the cavity. ------------ And even when you get rid of the pain it doesn't mean that the problems with the cavity have stopped. The bacteria that causes cavities are not removed by the pills that ease the pain. If you don't treat your cavities you can easily end up with total prosthesis by you're 50.

its because dentists have to work with microscopic cells and living thing that the naked eye cant see
It shouldn't hurt at all, however, if it's a deep cavity, they might blow air into the cavity and ask you if it hurts. That's just probably to see that they won't be filling in a plaque filled cavity. All they really do is fill it with a substance and let it dry. Simple and Painless really.
Excessive of sweet sodas drink can cause these kind of holes which may result in cavity if untreated. See your dentist ASAP.
The best way to know if you have a cavity is to see your dentist for a check-up. He or she will look for little spots on each surface of your teeth to see is there are small holes with bacterial activity. But sometimes cavities are hidden and can only be detected on X-rays. Cavities don't always cause pain. When they are at a stage that you can see them or feel them, they might have reached an advanced state.
Go to the dentist! See a dentist.
More than likely yes, go see your dentist before it reaches the pulp and you need root canal treatment.
depending on what kind of feeling, it might be a toothache or a cavity so stay away from hard and or sweet foods until you see a dentist about it. louis rainville.
