Holes in teeth.: Some things to consider- 1. 'tiny' holes often are the tip of the iceberg to 'bigger' cavities below. 2. Oil of cloves may or may not help temporarily and certainly won't do anything long term. 3. Putting off dental treatment only results in bigger problems, more cost, more inconvenience and greater chance of losing teeth. Best advice- see a dentist asap.

Training: It takes 4 yrs of college and then another 4 yrs of dental school to be able to provide the best, least expensive, most long lasting rx for this problem. Dr sandler is correct, this is not a diy project. Get it fixed before it gets out of hand.
