If your decay is in the early stages, your dentist may apply a fluoride varnish to the area. This can help to stop further decay, particularly if you lower your intake of sugar.If decay has worn away your enamel and caused a cavity, your dentist will remove the decay and restore your tooth with a filling. If the nerve in the middle of your tooth is damaged, you will need a root canal treatment, which removes the nerve and restores the tooth with a filling or crown.If the tooth is so badly damaged it cannot be restored, the only option may be to remove it.

An amalgam tattoo is an area of discoloration in the mouth caused by the migration of particles of dental amalgam which become embedded under the oral membranes, causing a patch of gray, black, or blue to appear. Amalgam tattoos are very common in people who have fillings and crowns, and they are not a cause for concern, unless people are bothered by their appearance. However, some oral cancers can look like amalgam tattoos in their early stages, so it is important to confirm that a dark patch is indeed an amalgam tattoo, and not something more sinister.
