1) picture is not clear for exact diagnosis go for X-ray of that teeth it will make clear with the X-ray weather it will go for filling or RCT. 2) Frequent Caries reason can be different for different individual if you have habit of taking processed food or beverages / soft drinks it makes your teeth prone to caries , rinse with water after intake of every meal or food . 3) You can visit to your dentist everything will be done in dental clinic itself.

Tooth Decay Diagnosis: From the information provided, it's difficult to definitively determine if you have tooth decay on the molar based solely on a description. A dentist would need to visually examine the tooth and possibly take X-rays to make an accurate diagnosis. Cavity Severity and Treatment: The severity of a cavity determines the appropriate treatment. If caught early, a cavity can often be treated with a filling. If the decay has progressed deeper into the tooth and affected the pulp, a root canal treatment might be necessary. Cavity Proneness: Some people may be more prone to cavities due to various factors such as genetics, diet, oral hygiene habits, and the composition of saliva. It's important to maintain good oral hygiene, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, to help prevent cavities. Dentures for Missing Tooth: If you have a missing molar and are considering a denture, you should consult a dentist. They will assess your oral health, discuss your options, and recommend the most suitable solution for your case. Dentures can be custom-made to fit your mouth and restore the appearance and function of the missing tooth. When approaching a dental hospital for dentures, you can start by scheduling a consultation. During the consultation, you can discuss your needs and preferences with the dentist. They will explain the process, the types of dentures available, and the cost involved. It's important to consult with a qualified dentist in person to get a proper diagnosis, treatment recommendations, and answers to your specific questions. If you're experiencing more severe dental issues than your family members, it could be due to a variety of factors, and a dentist can provide personalized advice based on your oral health history and examination.

You should go for routine dental check every six months if you want to save your tooth . Routine dental check up will help in early detection of caries and prevent you from expensive dental treatment.

Difficult to say about cavity by looking thr picture. Better Visit a local dentist for physical evaluation and treatment ( if required). Dental caries is a multifactorial disease, so better visit a dentist in person to understand what all factors are contributing in your case.

Hi, From the picture shared, it is difficult to determine if you have a tooth decay or not. I suggest you meet a dentist for a clinical examination. As per your query regarding caries prone, some individuals are prone to dental caries no matter how well they maintain their oral hygiene. A routine dental check up every 6 months can help identify a decay in the early stage. As per your query regarding missing tooth, you can visit a dentist and they will provide you with the different replacement options.

Tooth doesn't seem to to be carious in the pic attached. No need to go in for Filling also. Caries in. a person's mouth depends upon a lot many factors not just having clean teeth. It depends upon your tooth structure that may be different from your family members, your eating habits, your way of brushing, your salivary composition, oral microflora etc etc. You can keep most of these factors under control by brushing twice daily BUT using a correct technique of brushing and using mouth wash & flossing regularly. Patients with deep fissures and grooves are more prone to developing caries too. If you feel you are caries prone avoid eating too much sticky/sweet food or at least rinse afterwards. Also, consider professional flouride/ anti-caries treatment. There are test to know caries activity but you don't need to go through all that since the treatment protocol doesn't depend on them. Start taking measures otherwise. For a missing tooth implant is the best replacement option.
