I have what i think is an "erosion cavity" at the back of my tooth. What are the ways to treat this?

In brief: Erosion cavity

See your dentist for an examination and diagnosis.
This could be from decay, a fracture, or the tooth might be worn away due to your bite or from grinding. Treatment will depend on the diagnosis, and can be anything from a simple filling to a crown.

You may also need a nightguard. Ask your dentist to evaluate you for one
