Hi, this is Dr. Parag Shah. Yes, Cavity needs to be treated and has to be done as soon as possible. Whether a root canal is required or no i will be able to comment only after examining or looking at the x ray. After treating this cavity, you should also look at cavity prevention measures like fluorides or sealants. Thank you.
