I have a cavity and I can't get into my dentist for a month. Will it get worse over the course of a month?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Somewhat

Dental caries progress slowly, so one month should really not make a difference in the outcome.
.. meaning a small cavity will still be a small cavity. Wait a year, and a small cavity can become a large cavity.
