Hello and welcome to hcm forum,
The numbness in your body and tachycardia do not have any connection with dental caries.
Please do visit your dentist soon.
Scaling and restoration of cavities has to be done.
Chlorhexidine mouthrinses can be used to gargle.
Plenty of fluids has to be taken and keep yourself nourished.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Regarding your systemic health is concerned,avoid anxiety and stress.
Lead a peaceful life.
Please get a thorough examination by your physician.

Thanks for asking the query,

Numbness in the body, tachhycardia do not have any relation with tooth pain, I would suggest you to visit to Physician and get checkup done.
For tooth cavities you need to visit the Dentsit get the clinical evaluation done take x-rays of the tooth and get it filled, if the cavities are deep involving the pulpal tissue Root canal treatment has to be performed.
Go for symptomatic treatment of complete mouth scaling and polishing.
Maintain a good oral hygiene, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

Tooth decay is nothing but bacterial infection that spreads to the deeper structures of the tooth leading to caviti formation or when it involves the tooth nerve tissue leading to pulpitis.

such decayed teeth can be treated by simple restoration or root canal procedure if needed.

Tachycardia or high blood ressure has got no connection with dental caries .

It is a emergency medical condition and definately needs to b treated by a general physician.

for dental issues ,
exact diagnosis can be made only after clinical examination and evaluation by taking radiographs.

i would suggest you to get and OPG radiograph done which will help in diagnosis and accordingly treatment can be planned .
consult an dentist and get the examination done.

i hope this helps ,

take care.
