Cavities ???

i have never had a cavity in my life everrrr! im17 and im getting invisalign. the doctor said it didnt look like i had any but he had to check if i had any cavities in order to start my treatment. im just wondering what they do if you have one. how do they fix it and do they have to inject ya with anesthetic. haha i dont know anything about it.

Cavities ???
wow. that's great, no cavities!!! Chances are you don't have any, you seem to have taken very good care of them. IF he does find one, sometimes they are just soft spots on your tooth, it is really very simple.Especially because your teeth are in such good health. What they do is Xray all of your teeth. They will check for cavities, and any wisdom teeth not yet seen. If a cavity is found, they will give you a little pinch for the numbing medicine. Sometimes, they will do a topical to help numb the skin first. It really doesn't hurt, it is a pinch, and it can be uncomfortable, but it goes away quickly. After you are numb, the dentist will use a little tiny drill bit to clean out the bad stuff, put a solution on the cleaned out tooth, like a glue, and then put in the filling. Today they use something called a composite filling, its white and looks just like your tooth. After all this is done, he will ask you to bite down on some articulating paper...something like carbon paper, to see if it needs to be adjusted. After that, you are done ! If you feel like you aren't biting down right, go back and have them shave it a bit. no numbing needed this time.

It is really no big deal. You can be out of there in 30 Min's !
Reply:They will inject you with an anesthetic, to make sure you don't feel the pain. Then scrape of the decay with a drill and put a filling in there to make the hole look pretty and prevent further decay. Here's the link for futher information :
Reply:They use a small or large drill[depending on the size of the infected area and time available for removal] to remove the dead tooth parts if it is infected with bacteria.Depending on the doctor,you can choose the cavity to be removed with or without anesthesia.If you choose with anesthesia you will feel no,or very little,pain and most people desire to avoid the pain.It is easier for the doctor to remove the infected area and it is easier for the patient to endure the procedure.If you choose the procedure without anesthesia it will be very painful unless the nerve of the tooth is dead in which case the tooth will either have to be removed or disinfected and filled with composite material such as Amalgam or crown pin[for the future tooth crown if necessary]depending on the type and the position of the tooth.The material that is used in most cases for filling is called Amalgam.A composite material.An alloy of Mercury and Silver and possibly other metal/s.Many people fear the dentist,especially the ones who have never visited it.They fear the unknown but once you face your fear you will not be afraid again or you will fear less the next time.Visit your dentist every 3 months for a checkup.If a cavity occurs within these 3 months it is very likely that it will be smaller one and much less painful to remove.The more frequent your checkups are the higher the chance is to find the cavity in early stage thus reducing the damage to the tooth.My advices would be visit your dentist for checkups every 3 months and if a cavity is detected choose anesthesia before the procedure.Do not eat sucrose rich food such as candy or sugar coated corn flakes or syrup which is basically liquid sucrose.The worst kind of sugar which is highly addictive.The most popular drug in the world.Sucrose.If you give the bacteria in your mouth sucrose it is like giving them pure energy that they will use in no time and create acid that will disintegrate your tooth surface and enable them to enter your tooth and start feeding on the energy inside it.Avoid all unnatural food especially fast food.
