Do I fix my small tooth cavity or wait?

Updated: Jan 17

If you have a tooth cavity, it's generally advisable to address it promptly rather than waiting. Dental cavities, if left untreated, can progress and lead to more significant problems, such as pain, infection, and the potential for tooth loss. Addressing a cavity early can help prevent further damage and more extensive treatments in the future.

When you visit your dentist, they can assess the severity of the cavity and recommend the appropriate treatment. In the case of small cavities, the most common treatment is the placement of a dental filling to restore the tooth's structure and prevent the cavity from progressing. Dental fillings are typically a straightforward and effective way to address minor cavities.

If you're unsure about whether to address your tooth cavity, I recommend scheduling an appointment with a qualified dental professional. They can evaluate the cavity and provide personalized guidance based on your specific oral health needs. Early intervention is generally the best approach to prevent the cavity from worsening and to maintain the health of your teeth.
