Discovering a cavity is disappointing however it does not have to be a huge dental problem if it is treated right away. Catching a cavity early on and having the appropriate treatment will ensure the cavity does not develop into further dental problems. If a cavity goes untreated and the tooth continues to decay it can lead to infection. If infection sets in, a root canal may be needed. During a root canal, the doctor will clean up the infection and remove the dead or damaged nerves inside the tooth. The tooth is then sealed off. Root canal treatment is a very effective treatment for a badly decayed tooth, however it is always better to prevent a problem than have to treat it.
