Tooth Decay

Question: tooth decay? I have a decayed tooth which is a molar. i dont want to get it extracted. it doesnt hurt all the time, just once in a blue moon. what other methods are there to treat tooth decay? :)

Answer: Your options really depend on how soon you act. Decay will just keep growing if you don't treat it. Your best hope is just a filling; however, if the decay has grown too large to fill or has gotten to the nerve of the tooth then you'll need a root canal and a crown. Usually if it has started to hurt, you're past the point of a filling, unfortunately.
