I have a hole in my tooth...?
I have a little indentation in my right k9. it doesnt hurt, and it doesnt look like a cavity, meaning none of the blackish stuff.. It's been there for a while though, hasnt gotten worse. Its towards the top of my gumline but there is still tooth above it, it doesnt go very far in either. My question is, would i need to get a filling and if so would they drill? (bad experiance from before, the dentist didnt numb me and im scared of needles around my mouth) Or would they give me something to help if its just enamel?

Actually it just sounds like you might have some recession of your gum tissue (possible from brushing a little too hard) the tooth above it is most likely the root of your tooth. Make sure you're using a soft bristle brush and that you are not brushing too hard or too vigorously. You can go for a consult at your dentist and find out. Just because you go, doesn't mean you have to get treatment if you don't want to, but at least you would know for sure.

I have one in my tooth, and my dentist never says anything about it, so I assume its nothing.

You should really have it checked out, but for now, utilize a rinse with fluoride in it, like Act.

It might be tooth brush abrasion or an abfraction. Tooth brush abrasion in normally found on more than one tooth and it's simply from brushing hard. An abfraction is a little different. In a nut shell, when we put pressure on our teeth it can cause the tooth to flex a little causing tiny microns of enamel to flake off which cause a groove or indention near the gum line. It's some what normal but if it bothers you your dentist can put a composite filling in that's tooth colored but the same thing will happen to the filling. I assume most dentists would numb you unless there is a root canal on the tooth. Next time you see your dentist mention it and get their perspective. Most of the time if you can live with it then it's no big deal.
