Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
In the case of cavities. physical examination needs to be done by a dentist to find out his condition. If the hole does not reach the pulp chamber (the nerve chamber of the tooth), the dentist may make a direct patch. If the hole reaches the pulp chamber, the dentist may first plan root canal treatment, then proceed with filling using a filling material, and cover with the final restoration using an artificial crown. Meanwhile, if cavities are so severe and can no longer be treated with conservative treatment, the dentist may suggest tooth extraction to prevent more severe complications.
You are advised to consult directly with the dentist so that evaluation and treatment is needed. As a recommendation at home, you are advised to brush your teeth regularly twice a day. To help reduce pain, you can use paracetamol at a dose that follows the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
