You CAN but only temporarily (like if yours falls out on Friday night but you can't go to the dentist til Monday) drugstores sell filling paste , its kept near the toothpain stuff like orajel and antiseptic rinse...its only $2 or $3 and you mix it yourself, or its premixed, you just roll it into a ball, stuff it in the cavity using a special little spoon that's provided, and let it harden, I find that if you chew on a piece of cloth (like tshrt) it hardens and tampers down way easier. Tada. All done. mY MOTHER HAD ONE LAST LIKE 10 YEARS, not reccomended tho
You cannot repair your own cavities yourself however you can temporarily fill them with the paste that the first answer describes. The paste is actually for temporarily replacing lost fillings or temporarily repairing loose caps and should never be used as a permanent fix. Cavities are caused by thinning enamel (Layer of minerals outside of teeth) allowing bacteria to get to the dentin (The actual bone part of teeth). This bacteria breaks down the dentin. It is a real bacterial infection, however it cannot be cured via anti-biotics because it is not really tissue so no white blood cells are able to get to the infection. The way dentists repair cavities is by grinding away all of the infected parts of the enamel and dentin so it cannot spread farther, then they fill the missing parts of the tooth with a material made of gold, porcelain or a silver amalgam (Zinc, silver, tin, copper and lead) or a glass resin.
Filling a cavity with the stuff you can buy in stores will not stop the infection from progressing. When a tooth has a hole in it, this allows bacteria to get to the dentin or the pulp (Nerve-like center of the tooth). Because it is not protected by the enamel, an infection can start extremely easily and you do not want an infection spreading into the pulp as it causes extreme pain and will require a root canal or pulpectomy. This stuff allows you to temporarily fill it so an infection won't start until you can get the filling replaced.
However, filling a hole in an infected tooth can stop or slow the pain of a bad infection but if you have an infection in the pulp you should not fill it. When white blood cells fight an infection as they will for an infection in the pulp, it creates pus which is dead white blood cells (Leukocytes). Filling a tooth while you're fighting off the infection can cause a build up of pressure from the pus which will put pressure on the nerve causing extreme pain.
you have to fill the cavity in your tooth in emergency dental clinic, because if the cavity left untreated, it will be deeper and reach to your dental nerves. Then you'll suffer from much more pain and the dental process will be harder. So, whenever yo see a cavity in your tooth refer to emergency dental clinic as soon as possible.
no they don't they just numb it (alternate answer) No, a dentist does not put you to sleep to fill a cavity, but a dentist will inject your mouth with Novocaine so that you won't feel pain when the tooth is drilled. Anesthesia is a serious medical procedure, which is not undertaken lightly. Sometimes dental work is done under anesthesia, if the dental work is very extensive, but that would not be done for a mere cavity.
I don't agree with the bottom answer. To make it simple, you can view cavities in two ways. If they appear on the surface of the tooth, any dentist can see it directly with his or her own eyes. But if the cavity is between two teeth, or under a filling, the cavity can only be seen on an x-ray. All dentists should be equipped with dental x-rays. And knowing where the cavity is, a dentist drills to get to it. He can't. You might need to go to another dentist, that way it will be done correctly. Good luck to you:)
