My daughter had a dental exam about one-year ago and was told that she had 12 cavities. She went off to school without the opportunity to get them filled. However, a recent exam by a different dentist determined no cavities, and in fact commented on her perfect teeth. Is there a scientific explanation or should I be considering filing a complaint with the state dental board?

  • Cavity which needs filling, once occured can not get treated itself without restoration. If incipient lesions are there which are just white chalky spots they can be remineralised itself by fluoride present in dentirifices and if they are called cavities then they can vanish themselves. But they cannot be on 12 teeth and there is no other scientific explanation for this. For removal of doubts you can take an opinion from dental office.
