The whole is most likely from a cavity so they will put a filling in it. Most likely the dentist will get you numb. When you are numb they will drill out any decay and then shape the whole so it will hold a filling properly. If it is a front tooth, you will get a tooth colored filling. If it is a back tooth, you could get a silver filling or a tooth colored filling. That depends on your insurance, the docotor and you. If you have more questions, the dentist should answer any of them before beginning the work.

If you knock out a permanent tooth how do you treat this?

If the tooth has just been knocked out and you have the tooth, place it in milk or water and get to your dentist. If you can get to the dentist in time, quite often a tooth can actually be re-implanted. But you have to do it ASAP! If you have the tooth and can't get in touch with your regular dentist, then call any dentist you can get in contact with. There may even be an emergency dentist number in your phone book. But you have to call now!

Can you use Bactrim to treat an Abscessed tooth?

Normally it is quite difficult for any antibiotic to get to the abscess in an abscessed tooth. The infection is usually somewhere in the root and does not have a good blood supply. If your dentist gave you Bactrim, he probably did not give it to you to treat the abscess, but to treat the infection in the bone below the tooth. The usual way to treat the abscess, is to drill it out. It is not normally just treated with an antibiotic.
