how severe is my cavity? It is on one of my back molars, and appears as a hole in the tooth. It hurts only slightly when I eat hard foods, other than that there is no outside pain. I want to know how bad it could be and what actions may have to be taken for it to be fixed. Getting the tooth pulled is close to out of the question. I am 15 and male. It is hard to get a picture of it, so I will draw a picture of its basic size. The gray on the drawing indicates the size of the cavity. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow. Thanks so much.

Well done for having a look in your mouth and finding a possible problem

The best way to find out how big it is to have and x-ray on it

A dentist can do this for you and give you an opinion as to what treatment you need

You need to have a dentist take a look soon before you get an abscess
