It depends: if the cavity is just beginning then high concentration of sodium fluoride might control the expansion of the cavity If you have a well established cavity then you need to have your dentist eliminate it and place a filling If you are prone to decay then you should be using a fluoride rinse and have excellent oral hygiene
