This could be due to decay of teeth. Get your dental check up done and get them filled.
Maintain good oral hygiene. Go for scaling and polishing.
Definition: cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Causes: cavities, also called tooth decay or caries, are caused by a combination of factors, mostly by the bacteria that are stuck onto the teeth surfaces that releases a lot of acids which causes the demineralisation (eroding) of the tooth/ teeth thus causing decay. Poor oral hygiene, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks, eating junk or sticky food causes the bacteria to multiply quicker and faster releasing a lot of toxins, chemicals and acids. Which cause bleeding gums, cavities, bad breath, periodontal (gum) problems and many more. Signs and symptoms: toothache (intermittently/ continuous) sensitivity (hot/ cold/ acidic/ sweet/ sour) hole in the tooth brown/ black staining of the tooth treatment: if the cavity is superficial (in the enamel/ or in the dentine) it will give you intermittent pain/ sensitivity especially while eating sweet/ sour and/or hot and cold food and beverages. At this stage the tooth can still be saved by filling/ restoration. If the cavity reaches the pulp (nerve tissue) it will cause continuous pain and discomfort and it has to be treated by a root canal. Your dentist will decide whether it needs to be treated by a filling or a root canal. Filling/ restoration might not require a crown but it does when it is rc treated. Hope this will help you decide.
