Hi doc! …I have a hole in my tooth that is getting bad. I can’t bite on the tooth andI have serious pain and headache too. I do not wish to loose the tooth,can anything still be done to save it?
Answer…Yes ,u can save the tooth. A hole in the tooth called cavity is caused by micro organisms that act on refined carbohydrates in our diet. When cavity is left unattended to, like in your case,the organisms eats deep into the inner living tissue in the tooth (pulp) and surrounding supporting tissues are affected..Visit your dentist to examine d extent of the lesion. However you should be able to benefit from a Root canal therapy and subsequent crowning of the tooth..
