It is a good thought to get treated before it landsup in pain, usually decay vl not give pain till it touches deep vital tissue, visit nearby dentist to get it filled

Hi, it's a good thing that you are concerned about dental health. If you have only cavity in tooth, then best treatment option is to get it filled with composite or GIC. Filings will prevent further decay. Visit your nearby dentist for filling. Get a X-ray done just to check extent of cavity in tooth. Depending upon that we can decide if you need any other treatment. Take care.
