Mouthwash is better


Using straight peroxide is not healthy for the mouth. It can cause an imbalance of bacteria resulting in a super infection. It would be healthier to brush more often and use a mouth wash with flouride

I have actual holes in my teeth by the gumline. They don't hurt (yet). Are these cavities, and what should I do if I cannot afford a dentist?

Go to charity clinic


There is county clinic or charity clinic that would do filling. If your town has a dental school then the emergency clinic is the best bet. A cavity can be done without anesthesia if detected early when it is small. Most of the dentist would help you out if it is small and required a little effort to fill it. I know I would do it for no charge if the person is poor. Do NOT wait.

Please see a dentist. The dentist will take x-rays and examine you. He or she will then be able to tell you if the teeth are salvageable. The fact that you have pain means that you should be seen quite soon.

Make an appointment with a local dentist who can examine you with radiographs to see between your teeth. Hopefully they can be restored with simple fillings.

These holes called cavities can become bigger causing the tooth to hurt and become infected. Have the fillings now as they are not expensive.

Holes in teeth.


Absolutely! If you had a hole in your hand it might be painful and you would want to get it fixed, so it goes for your teeth. Cavities untreated can lead to infection and loss of tooth, inability to chew properly which can lead to digestion problems. your teeth and gums are a primary player in your overall health, take care of them like they are.

First See a Dentist


Holes are either from decay or trauma. Decay is a process where food particles become trapped in the deep grooves of the biting surface of your teeth or between the teeth. If this food is not removed by brushing & flossing, Oral bacteria "eat" the food, digest it and give off acid which "eats away" your tooth causing the hole. Frequent visit to DDS and Excellent Oral Hygiene are important.

Why do holes in my teeth hurt when sugar goes into them?

Bacteria


Once the decay passes through enamel, the dentinal tubules, which have passages to the nerve of the tooth, become exposed, resulting in a toothache. The pain may worsen with exposure to heat, cold, or sweet foods and drinks.

Acid


Sugar is food for the bacteria that live in those holes. The bacterial byproduct is acid which is what likely caused the holes to form in the first place as the calcium in your teeth is dissolved away. Once the holes get deep enough, nerves in the dental pulp on the interior of your teeth start to feel some pain. If you can see the holes yourself, they are likely representative of advanced decay

Hard to say


Without seeing the holes you are referring to, it is hard to determine exactly what you feel is your dental problem. A dentist needs to see these holes and then perform any treatment, if appropriate and necessary or at least explain to you what the holes are.

10531823x1386630774 10014299x1386629211

No but...


If you have unhealthy enamel already (decalcification spots on your teeth), extensive, improper use of ultrasonic devices can cause cavitation (holes) that weren't there before. Now for this to happen, the teeth have to be pretty darn weak to begin with. So really, the answer to your question is no.
