  • At the age of 15, if you have 11 cavities and 4 Root Canals that means a lot of dental work. The dentist have not mentioned about pulling out of teeth. So I donot think there is going to be any tooth pulled out. The dentist is trying to save the tooth by doing root canal treatments. Now donot delay and get the treatment done whenever you get appointment. You should maintain very good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day properly with regular flossing. You should try to visit dentist after every 6 months and if your foster mother is not taking you to dentist then you can atleast take care of yourself.
