Dentist took Xrays- said I had a cavity as there was darkness around tooth area in Xray. He filled it. Question is if the little bit of darkness he saw is decay, where does it go if the cavity is filled so no more can get in there? Just a curious question

  • I could be wrong but I think he probally drilled out the decay before he filled it...

  • I figured that to. But when he showed me the Xray i thought the darkness was more down near the roots. I guess I could ask Him, didn't want to make a big deal out of it.
