Treatment for cavities depends on the severity of your teeth.

Filling As soon as a hole forms in the tooth, the dentist will remove the decayed tissue and fill the hole with a filling material like composite. Root canal treatment Root canal treatment is performed when the cavity has reached the third layer or dental pulp.

Dental crown For more severe damage or weakened teeth, you may need a dental crown to maintain the function of your tooth.

Tooth extraction In some cases, severely decayed teeth that cannot be repaired must be extracted to prevent bacterial infection.
