lybrate-user, get your cavities filled, as they will not heal themselves and may worsen over time, which may be the cause of rejection, (depends on qualifying criteria set by examining authorities).
Don't take a risk, get the treatment.
it is absolutely safe to get the root canal done in 10 or more teeth. Laughing gas is safe & good option for uncooperative children. It has 90% chances to make your son co-operative. Try general anesthesia only when laughing gas doesn't works. General anesthesia is also a good option but not better than laughing gas.
Better keep gap of half an hour.
And if there is cavity then medicine will not resolve it.
You will need to take either rct or extraction depending on the extension.
And do it early before it affects more teeth.
Root canal is safe. But after that you cannot be careless in teeth care.
Otherwise the cavities will keep occuring in other teeth.
For tooth sensitivity you can also take homoeopathic treatment.
Hello, kindly visit a dentist and get a x-ray done based on the xray the depth of the cavity will be known accordingly it can be filled or root canal can be done if it is deep.
Your pain will go once your treatment is started and if required the dentist will prescribe antibiotics and analgesics too.
Hello, This can be decided only after seeing it clinically and after taking the x-ray of your tooth to find the depth of your cavity based on that either it can be filled or root canal treatment can be done. Option of extraction will be preferred only if the damage is huge and cannot be restored. So kindly visit a dentist.
Hi Lybrate User,
Thanks for the query.
Extraction of the tooth never leads to any cancer like situation in future.
My advice is if tooth is saveable save it for better alignment of permanent tooth other wise get it extracted and relax.
