Teeth and holes

I forgot to mention that my dentist said I had a really tiny cavity and that they would have to put in a filling. He said it was really minor and they wouldn't even have to numb me. Well today when I'm there for the cleaning I ask the lady about it. So she pulls up her little tooth camera thing and takes a picture of the tooth that has the small cavity. Well sure enough in the very center of this tooth is a little tiny brown spot with a hole in the middle of it. This spot is probably 2% of the face the tooth, really small. Well to check for cavaties they use their little pick and go from tooth to tooth checking for softness, and that's how he found the cavity. My tooth even reflects that, you can see the little hole where the pick hit the cavity and left a little tiny indentation. Kinda cool.
