If it is superficial - that is to say if it is still within the enamel or just on the root surface, and it has not cavitated (no hole in it yet), then you sometimes can remineralize it through careful oral hygiene (brush gently 2-3 times/day - or floss if it is in-between teeth) and daily flouride. You would also need to cut back on acidic foods, drinks and soda.

If it is cavitated (has a hole in it), then you will need to have it fixed by a dentist.

Can you get rid of cavities without going to the dentist?

No. I do not think you can do that. You would have to go to the dentist. Not possible to get rid of them. Although you could try brushing the cavity for a couple hours.


Are there any ways to remove or treat a cavity without going to the dentist?

No, there is no way to get rid of a cavity other than going to a dentist. There are ways to help the pain temporarily if it's needed, but only a dentist can remove the cavity. ------------ And even when you get rid of the pain it doesn't mean that the problems with the cavity have stopped. The bacteria that causes cavities are not removed by the pills that ease the pain. If you don't treat your cavities you can easily end up with total prosthesis by you're 50. You can see this video for more info on cavities - http://www.checkdent.com/en/videos/tooth-cavities-89.html

How do you get rid of cavities without going to the dentist?

Actually, yes, there is. Most dentists won't tell you this because they make about $100 on cavity repair, but using Baking Soda+Peroxide, Anticavity toothpaste actually reverses the effects of cavities. I noticed a cavity myself on my left front tooth and used this same technique to get rid of it. My cavity became shallower, and overtime disappeared, and enamel was instantly restored to damaged parts of my tooth whre my cavity would have gotten a lot worse. It is not painless, however. The first time I tried this technique, There was severe stinging in my cavity (caused by killing off bacteria and decay), and my gums started to bleed. Beleive me, though, It's a hell of a lot better than going to the dentist.

How do you get rid of cavities?

If you have a full blown cavity, you will need to have it filled by the dentist. Cavities are caused by the disease called Caries, which is a bacterial disease that EVERYONE has. There is a constant demineralization/remineralization of the tooth from the acid produced by the bacteria and remineralization from ions in your saliva. A diet high in sugar or fermentable carbohydrates (chips, pasta, etc) feeds the bacteria, producing more acid, demineralizing your teeth more, leading to cavities. To help prevent cavities from forming, eat sugar and carbohydrates infrequently, and try to drink water after eating them. Same thing applies for acidic food/beverages. Also, make sure to brush twice a day to get rid of the plaque on your teeth. This is where the bacteria hang out. Be sure to floss once a day, the most common places to find cavities is between teeth because it is the hardest area to clean. Fluoride in drinking water helps keep your teeth strong, as well as fluoride treatments at the dentist- they are NOT just for kids!
