Cavity

    Sorry I was unable to ask my question live on the last Q & A. I was having trouble logging onto the call, likely due to my location. I did however have a nice day of CT at Morrison springs!

    I went to a dentist last week for routine visit and was told I likely have a small cavity under one of my fillings on one of my molars. He said he was going to request my last x-ray (from a few years ago) and compare. If it looks worse, he wants to do a filling.

    Should I request to monitor because it’s still small and not bothering me, though that might require more x rays than I typically try to have? Should I just let him go ahead with the filling? Should I request gold or another material for filling?

    Thank you for any advice you can give me!

    If it is underneath the filling redoing it is reasonable but he could pulp out the tooth if the decay is more extensive at the time of repair
