Kindly get an X-ray done of the decayed tooth as you and your dentist will come to know the extent of decay whether it is involving pulp or not. If not then you may get the caries removed and get the cavity filled with a tooth coloured restoration. If it is involving pulp or close to pulp then you may have to get root canal treatment done followed by a cap/ crown. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

You have to get either of root canal or tooth extraction based on the severity. There are no much effective medications. But you do oil pulling with medicated oil to reduce the pain and swelling.

One cavity in molar (back teeth) is 2 points ,where as other teeth counts 1 point ,the minimum qualifying points are 14, so you have one or two decay its not going to disqualify you from selections, In very rare cases, aspirant may have less than 14 dental points, .Though there are very rare cases of getting unfit due to less dental points, but as said precaution is better than cure. It is advisable to go for proper oral cleanup before medical examinations. And final rejections or acceptance depends upon total marks [CDS+SSB]. ALL THE BEST!

Dear Lybrate User, Treatment cost always varies according to extent of the decay in tooth. If your tooth is in initial stage of decay cost is less. If decay increases cost increases. Also varies with expertise of doctor. Type of material used for crown. Rct needed or not. Follow as your dentist say. All the best for your treatment. Cost may vary from 2000 to 15000.
