Hi there, I would like if someone can help me with advice. I saw my dentist in the end of May and she said I have a caries behind one of my front teeth. :(I booked an appointment for next week ( the earliest nhs appointment available), but I have already noticed that my gum over that tooth gets slightly swollen and its not painful but I can feel a process has started :((( I can not afford private care and therefore my question is - can it develop from a mild caries to something much more seriously for about 30 days? Thanks very much :(

No, decay takes YEARS to progress from mild to severe, in most cases. There are exceptions but they are very rare. There is no way a small cavity went to a huge one in 30 days.
