In brief: Dental cavities

Once you vave the cavities there is no alternative medicine two cure the cavities.
There is no doubt that all the preventive measures, cutting sugars and carbs, brushing and flossing and fruoride treatment will prevent the formation of the cavities.But once you have real cavities these need to be filled.

In brief: No

Once a tooth has decay, it has to be reomoved and restored.

If only the demineralization stage of decay has occurred, remineralization can be accomplished and basically cure the decay. If cavitation (a hole) has occurred, then it can't be cured. A filling needs to be placed.
