Borderline case a filling would suffice ... A case where cavity is on the nerves ... A root canal treatment is advised you can check with a filling first if it doesn't help kindly get root canal treatment done
This is a common problem, most of times the cavity is deep and even the X-ray shows borderline case. Take medicines. Doctor has to clean whole cavity or carious part before filling .sometimes pulp horns are exposed while cleaning. Do as your dentist suggests.
Silver amalgam fillings are no more recommended in the present scenarios. The best way to get the cavity filled is by composite resins which are more conservative to fill and are tooth coloured. The cost of treatment is variable from dentist to dentist. On an average a qualified and experienced dentist will charge round about 1000 to 1800 rupees for tooth.
