Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Teeth with cavities, even though the holes are new, must be treated promptly and properly patched. This is very important because teeth that have holes will be more difficult to clean and the remnants of food and plaque will more often enter and accumulate in these cavities. The rest of the food will become a breeding ground for bacteria and these bacteria will further damage the teeth and cause deeper holes. When the hole has reached the pulp (the deepest layer of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels), toothache will appear. When the hole has reached the pulp, various other complications can occur, for example infection and inflammation of the gums, the risk of developing an abscess in the gums, the risk of the spread of infection to the tissues around the gum (to the bones and surrounding soft tissue), the spread of infection to the heart and to blood can also occur.
Therefore, when a toothache has occurred, your wife should immediately consult a dentist. Treatment for deep cavities is most likely to have to be done in several stages. First the doctor will give medication in advance to deal with infections and inflammation of the gums. When the inflammation has subsided, then dental care can be done. If the teeth can still be repaired or patched, root canal treatment will be done first. Root canal treatment can be done in several meeting sessions. After the root canal is considered clean enough, then patching will still be done. If the tooth is so damaged and brittle that it cannot be repaired anymore, then the doctor will recommend tooth extraction and the installation of dentures to replace the extracted tooth.
We recommend that you immediately take your wife to the dentist for further evaluation and dental treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
