What Can I Do About A Small Cavity In My Tooth Besides Drill And Fill
Why?: Early demineralization\decalcification of the enamel of the tooth can sometimes be reversed with remineralizing toothpastes & impeccable oral hygiene.

After root canal on canine tooth #11, iam curious to know what are the symptoms/how it feels if the drill touches or drills into the sinus cavity floor?
Not going to happen: The root of tooth #11 lies under the floor of the nose and not in the sinus cavity. You should be numb with local anesthetic so you will feel pressure , but should not feel pain. I have never seen or heard of drilling into the sinus thru the six front teeth under the nose. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Are root canals done differently on teeth with old cavities? Hows the procedure done? Does the dentist cut my tooth in half or drill a hole? Then what
Root canal: A root canal is a procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber. The nerve and the pulp of the the tooth are then removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. The tooth is left intact. A crown then is placed over the tooth. There is no more pain than having a filling. ...Read more

I had a small cavity then slowly my tooth started chipping. Now there is a hole in it. It doesn't hurt will I need it filled or pulled?
Depends : Once decay has worked through the enamel(outer layer) and into the dentin(softer layer), the decay can spread through it very rapidly.
