Depending on how big it is, yes, you can heal cavities. I'm 31 and I use Xylitol. I began using after seeing it remineralize my DSs teeth. He had 16 small cavities and 1 large one. Using Xylitol toothpaste and rinse, candies, wipes and spray, all of the small cavities were totally healed; the large one was halted, but the dentist filled it this past week.
I would have left it but my DS kept getting food into it, so I had them fill it.
Anyway, since I've been using Xylitol the tartar buildup is no more, no plaque, no cavities. This is a first for me, and my mouth feels clean and fresh.
