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.
When you don't floss, you're at risk for developing gingivitis, and cavities between your teeth. Without flossing, you aren't able to remove dental plaque buildup. It's recommended to floss at least once a day!
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!

Hello lybrate-user, as your complain is only sensitivity ,it means that the cavity is superficial and the treatment would be a filling. Caution; get the filling done before the sensitivity turns to pain.
