Get all cavities filled as recommended by dentist?
I haven't been to a dentist in last few years until today and I have been told by the dentist that 11 of my posterior molars/teeth have cavities that need filling. The dentist is charging my insurance almost $900 and my share of the cost is almost nothing.
My concern is that only 3-4 teeth have proper cavities that are dentin-level deep and serious be filled. The remaining ones seem like micro-cavities.
Should I get them all filled without waiting to see if those micro-cavities mature into full cavities 5-10 years from now. The problem is Im afraid to get the dental-drill work done because then I'll have to get refills done every 4-5 years indefinitely. What would you recommend and how do you typically decide on this?
