Are there alternative treatment options for cavities?

A Answers (2)

  • There are not any alternative treatments for cavities. In general, the tooth must be treated by a dentist. If treatment isn't sought, the tooth could fall out.

    There are no real substitutions for fillings, root canals, or extractions if you have an advanced cavity. However, some preventative treatments can lesson your chances of developing more cavities. If you are cavity-prone, talk with your dentist about whether fluoride treatments or sealants are a good option for you.
