On the bottom left corner between the teeth, just below that big filling, is that a cavity??
This is the right side of the mouth right?
My dentist took these x-rays 5 months ago and never said anything about a cavity.
I've been having big issues with finding a dentist that is telling me what needs to be fixed..
Thanks in advance.

Good day
This is the left side of the mouth. It does look like there might be some leakage below the filling that is currently there.

Here's another x-ray from 2013, does this help at all? It looks slightly bigger in the newer x-ray to me..
I am having problems in that area, bad taste in the morning and I went to 2 dentists that did not say anything about a possible cavity there.
I also had that tooth worked on, the outer gumline was decayed badly, I had that decay for 10 years and dentists did not tell me even after a complete "exam"! I went in myself due to the bad breath and told him to fix it.

I have small black spots on both my canine teeth now in between, they say to wait until goes through the enamel all the way.. I don't know what to do now. They don't seem to want to fix anything (2 dentists). I also have 3 small black spots at the gumlines of other teeth, again I barely got them to accept one should be fixed.
How does a dentist decide if a black spot should be fixed? I had the black spot on that tooth in the x-ray go deep and across the gumline entirely without creating a cavity, so black spots can expand.. Should they be fixed as soon as they're detected even if there's no cavity?

There is a glass ionomer filling at the gumline on that tooth on the first x-ray I posted, I don't see it though, I guess ionomer doesn't show up like composite?
Thank you.
