1. A Hole In your tooth can not always be seen by just looking into the mouth. Tooth Decay Can Be Destroying The Tooth just below The Surface Of The Enamel. A Hole Will Only be apparent When the Decay or ‘caries’ has developed and Progressed further Into The Tooth causing the Enamel to collapse and create a visible hole in the tooth. The damage done at this stage Will Need treated and Cleaned Out By The Dentist To Prevent Further Damage.

2. Decay that is left Untreated Will continue to Progress Further Into The tooth. It will eventually reach the Sensitive Dentine And will then begin to cause Some pain or discomfort. At this stage the tooth can still be filled and restored by the dentist. The longer decay is left untreated the further it will progress and the experience of pain and discomfort will increase.

3.The middle of your tooth has a chamber which houses the nerves and blood vessels. The nerve and blood supply are what keeps the tooth healthy and alive. If decay has reached this chamber it can potentially kill the nerve. A dead nerve will encourage Bacteria to grow in the chamber which can pass Through A small opening on The Root Of The Tooth which can cause an extremely painful abscess. When this occurs there will only be two options available to you if you want to save the tooth, Extraction or root canal treatment.
