In brief: Pit Caries
Usually if they are small pits then the can be cleaned with a fissurotomy bur and sealed with pit and fissure seleants if they are larger then a filling needs to be done although a very small filling.

In brief: PIT CARIES
The dentist will either fill the caries or pull the worst teeth.
He or she will then tell you how to brush your teeth properly, tell you how often to floss, and then give you a non-caries diet.
