i have an impacted canine tooth and i think it has a cavity how is the dentist supposed to fill it if it hasnt erupted yet?

How is there a cavity on it if it has not erupted yet?
Reply:reckon he will kill you first, then extract the tooth, do his little dental voodoo, kill a chicken, replace the tooth, revive you as a zombie, the he will have dinner. This is the truth.
Reply:Clearly, as you've said, the tooth cannot be filled in its curent state. If you do have a cavity, I would imagine your dentist (or an oral surgeon) would have to make an incision in the gum in order to gain access to the decay, fill it, and then close the incision. There would really be no other option other than to extract it and it's highly unlikely any dental professional would suggest that route before exhausting all other avenues.
Reply:Rather than "think" it has a cavity, why not go to your dentist and find out for sure. If you are going to have this tooth brought into alignment with the rest of your teeth, don't worry. We have our ways to fix all sorts of things.....
