Hello Miftah Farid, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Cavities can indeed be a problem for anyone, from children to even the elderly. Teeth can cavities due to continuous erosion of compounds that are acidic. Thus, over time small holes form on the surface of the dental veneer. If left untreated, the hole can grow bigger and longer, even up to the cavity which contains blood vessels and nerves in the teeth. Therefore, good handling of cavities and maintaining healthy teeth and mouth is very important to do.
Symptoms of cavities vary, some at first did not feel any complaints, and some experienced complaints of toothache, teeth aching when eating / drinking (sensitive), swelling of the gums, and so forth. Handling for cavities is by filling the hole by a dentist. The doctor will determine in advance how deep the hole in your teeth and whether it can be patched immediately or require 'dental root treatment' first, or even in some cases it is better to just extract the tooth. The following are the risks and dangers of cavities.
In your condition, complaints of cavities are experienced along with the growth of the last molars (sometimes people call them wisdom teeth). Wisdom teeth are molars that usually grow / come out at the age of 20 years. If the growth is normal and there are no obstacles, it certainly will not be a problem. However, there are also some problems if the growth of molars is not good, for example impaction (where there is not enough space in the jaw for teeth, so that the growth is tilted / crashing into other teeth), and if oral health is not maintained, such as lazy to brush teeth , acidic conditions caused by bacteria and food debris in the teeth can cause infection and eventually pus forms around the tooth (tooth abscess).

My advice, you still have to check the condition of your cavities and the growth of your wisdom teeth to the dentist so that the doctor can do the examination and take the best solution for your cavities. As for the growth of wisdom teeth, doctors can also conduct supporting examinations such as X-rays to find out whether the growth direction is good or tilted.
Meanwhile, keep your teeth and mouth healthy by:
brush your teeth at least 2x a day (the best time is after breakfast and before going to bed)
Eat less food too sweet or too sour
drink less fizzy drinks and coffee
if you feel pain, you can take pain relievers like Paracetamol as recommended for use.
That's all, hopefully it's useful. Always healthy.
