Dear TeenHealthFX,
My (16F) back molar hurts, how do I know if it's normal, or from bad oral hygiene?

Dear My Back Molar Hurts,

Unfortunately, TeenHealthFX cannot diagnose over the internet. Please tell a parent or guardian and go see a dentist as soon as possible. A dentist will be able to confirm if it is a cavity or possibly your back molars growing in.  He or she will be able to provide you with the best treatment options. Good luck!
