If you got your wisdom tooth removal, then you are supposed not to spit and consume hot beverages and food for first 24 hours. Later after 24 hours, you can eat and drink normally but from the opposite side. Consume medication prescribed on time and ask your doctor if the medication is safe for the nursing mother. Start warm saline rinses after 24 hours to fasten healing. Do intimate if you have any further query.

Dear lybrate-user ji, the tooth is dead for sure and is due to some old insult to the tooth which would have gone unnoticed. If the bone is healthy and not mobile, we can save it 100% and an E max laminate or crown can be placed and that shall solve the problem. For more please consult.
Dental implant is a good option for missing tooth. Procedure starts with anaesthesia only, so it won't be painful. For cavities you can go ahead with filling or root canal (depending on extend of caries) as per dentist advice.
It is not possible for us to suggest without looking at the x-ray and knowing the case details.
You should follow the instructions of your dentist. And if you have doubt then Consult another dentist for second opinion in person.
