Your dental cavities are not related with your vaccination date or time. Kindly get yourself vaccinated as soon as possible, rest for 7 days and then get your cavities checked.

If you mean tested positive for covid, the time taken into consideration as of now is 3 months from your date of testing negative. If you mean dental cavity, rest assured, your vaccination has nothing to do with that.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meal. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

As far as I understand, you have an issue about the cavity on tooth right? Anyways, here you need not worry about that at this point. You need to completely focus on your lungs and oxygen level and kindly consult a general physician as soon as possible. Hopefully after your pulmonary issues are solved and you are healthy enough, you could then worry about the cavity.

Mucormycosis is a fungal infection which occurs due to dry mouth, uncontrolled diabetes and weak immune system with debilitating disease or patient on corticosteroids. It has got nothing to do with vaccine.

Rampant caries progresses at a faster rate in children and it involves multiple teeth. It’s also called nursing bottle caries as the decay spreads due to feeding milk during the night & putting the baby or children to sleep without brushing. Hence early diagnosis and initiation of preventive and restorative therapies are imperative in its management & cost varies accordingly. Rampant caries can affect the early permanent dentition if the child has improper dietary habits and poor oral hygiene maintenance. Dental tips: - brush teeth as soon as the tooth erupts with kids tooth paste & brush. Kids finger brushes are available in the market. Avoid things like licking your baby’s pacifier to clean it. Parents can pass harmful bacteria from their mouth to their children’s mouth, which can put children at an increased risk for cavities. Avoid biting & sharing food. Do not expect your child to brush regularly. Instead its parent’s responsibility to be studious enough to brush your child's teeth twice daily.
