No: There are no holistic remedies for a cavity. If there is no cavity or decay then holistic remedy may be an option.

Reconsider options: I want to be 4" taller and 40 years younger. In this world, that's not going to happen. Unfortunately neither is a home remedy to cure your cavity. You can suffer in pain or see a dentist who can hopefully save your tooth. The sooner you see a dentist, the sooner you'll be out of pain. Dentistry nowadays can be painless and postponing dental treatment only leads to more expense and less teeth.
