Cavities: Damage from cavities can not be reversed. If bad enough, a dentist will drill the cavity out and then place a crown over the tooth. If the cavity is not far along, it cannot be reversed but it can be kept from getting worse. Regular brushing and flossing along with a flouride rinse can help keep the teeth strong and prevent cavities from progressing.
