How do you treat a deep cavity?

I am a 22 year old male and I have a deep cavity. How do you treat a deep cavity?

You need to see your dentist for treatment. It could be a large filling, a crown, or possible root canal/core/crn. Different levels of treatment depending on the extent of decay.

If the cavity is not in the nerve yet, I will numb you and then remove all the decay. In most cases, I will then fill it with a filling.
Hope this helps.
