If you have a small black hole in your molar but it's not causing any pain, it's important to visit your dentist for an evaluation. The dentist will assess the size, depth, and location of the cavity to determine the appropriate treatment. If the cavity is small and hasn't reached the inner pulp of the tooth where the nerves are located, a filling may be sufficient to restore the tooth. However, if the cavity is deep and close to the pulp, or if there are signs of infection or decay within the tooth, a root canal treatment (RCT) may be necessary to save the tooth and prevent further damage. Ultimately, the decision between filling and root canal treatment will depend on the dentist's evaluation of the tooth's condition. It's essential to address dental issues promptly to prevent them from worsening and potentially leading to more extensive treatment in the future.

Hello. In general :- Black hole needs to be filled depending on the depth. RCT is not required if there is no pain. RCT was done is the same tooth or other ??

Hi, The black hole you are mentioning is probably a tooth decay. You need to get it filled to avoid it from spreading.
