In brief: No way
Sugar occurs in simple and complex forms.
Simple sugars like glucose, sucrose and fructose are like rocket fuel to the bacteria that make a cavity in your tooth. Why fuel them to damage you? Unfortunately, by nature, a cavity collects food, which is difficult to get out. Don't postpone your filling and reduce their simple sugar intake both now and later. Improve your hygiene get sealants asap.
