  • Cavities

    I may have several cavities is there any remedies or something to help them go away or something

  • The only for-sure remedy for a cavity is professional dental care. There are some people who say that cavities can be healed by the body - I'm not a believer - though you may want to look into it as an immediate remedy if for some reason you can't see a dentist.

    Based on your previous post about your period, it seems you aren't getting medical care. If payment is an issue, there are usually state or charity programs available for minors to get free or low cost care. Or if there is some other issue blocking you from getting medical attention, perhaps we can brainstorm solutions so you can get the help you need?

    • Um I absolutely do not have an issue with money I just simply dot like the dentist or dr so don't be assuming that people are poor just bc they don't want to go to the dr or dentist and FYI I do have all the help I need with money and stuff so I don't need any help in that area

      • Christina I don't think she meant to offend or insult you. Normally, people seek help for themselves if it's available and affordable and many people come here for advice because they can't afford help or it's not available to them. I don't think there are any treatments for cavities other than professional help. Sometimes you need to bite the bullet and help yourself when it comes to these things. Who really enjoys going to the doctor or dentist anyway? Not many. There is always sedation dentistry if you really hate it that much.

        • Contact with dental specialist because it is an serious problem.

          • I think you should go for cavities treatment.

            As special, decision of filling cavities in teeth that is based on several factors and the dentist eventually makes a judgement call based on these factors.

            Like:

            Clinical exam with x rays
            Close monitoring over a period of time
            Newer tools like lasers

            and many more...

            • Well there are some practical things you can do. For example stop eating anything acidic e.g. soft drinks, acidic fruits and sugary foods. Also there is a toothpaste that has been demonstrated to repair enamel using nanotechnology called bio repair. A chemist from the university of bologna in Italy holds the patent for the nano materials used in the tooth paste. It may or may not be useful in you're situation. But you check the facts for yourself, good luck.

                Unless you know otherwise, you should have written, there are no treatments for cavities that I know of, other than professional help.

                • Beethovengenius, it is rude to tell people what they "should be" posting, unless they're breaking the rules, in which case you should report the post through the triangle button with the exclamation point in it.

                  • I see nothing rude in the above comment. I was just pointing out that it was her opinion and not a fact.

                    • Catwoman may well be correct in her assertion that the only viable option is to seek out professional help. However I would personally caution against a conventional dentist and seek out an integrative one instead.

                      Or at least if a conventional dentist would be willing to use non silver(mercury)amalgam. Mercury fillings affected my parents in a big way, they had them for years, and within weeks of removing them their various health problems disappeared. .

                      • There is a common belief about cavities can not be reversed or healed. It has been proven in study published in the British Medical Journal that tooth decay could be healed or reversed. A right diet and medication can significantly help to heal cavity.
                        -Maintaining good oral hygiene
                        -Avoid candies, coffee and soft drinks
                        -Centrum multivitamin pills
                        -Fish oil
                        -Necessary fluoride treatment
                        These tips can help to heal cavity and regrow enamel. It will surely help many people who can't afford to go to the dentist.

                        • I'm sure cavities can heal by themself, the process is called remineralization. Our body just needs some things (like vitamins, calcium...) to do it.

                            I was going to click Like, but instead saying there are non-fluoride treatments now available, which are also helpful, like toothpaste with aloe, gano mushroom... Try to check them out.

                            • I am mentioning some home remedies below to prevent from cavities:

                              -Green and Black tea are helps to remove the cavity level.
                              -Brush your teeth twice a day.
                              -Tea tree oil has anti bacterial property and very beneficial for cavities. You have to rinse once or twice a day.
                              -Brushing with neem stick helps to destroy cavities.
