I had my 11 year old (turning 12 in 2 months) dental exam and cleaning done and dentist noticed a small cavity in his BABY tooth in the front line. Dentist advised me to go for filling to avoid damage to the other tooth. My question is , as Baby tooth is going to fall anyway and As it requires to numb the area and drill and fill , do we really need to go for filling? Please advise
Also, dentist recommended the "Sealants" on the molar tooth to protect? Is the Sealants are safe and useful? .
