Try to get ahold of some Thieves oil or Thieves oil toothpaste from this place

I don't know if you can order it directly or have to go through a distributor. I have not used it yet (just ordered some from someone I know) but I know several people (not distributors or related to the company) that have raved about it. It was just the topic of a lot of conversation on a local natural parenting board. Apparently, people have shocked their dentists w/ the results. You use the toothpaste and/ or dab on the oil to the affected tooth. Good luck!
There is also a thread somewhere in the dental forum on healing cavities w/ nutrition--good info but quite involved!

I just found www.secretofthieves.com/thieves-toothpaste.htm.
It looks like you can order through them (they have the oil blend, in addition to several other products).

You can't heal a cavity. It's in a tooth and teeth do not heal. I would recommend going to a dentist before it becomes unbearable. It's going to hurt a LOT more for the dentist to fiddle around with it and drill when it's a deep cavity. I would rather fix things now when (assuming) it's not very deep. Your dentist might even be able to fix it without a numbing agent. I've had some dental issues nipped in the bud early on without needing any injections.

Sorry, but fishface is totally wrong. Teeth absolutely have the ability to remineralize. It's a matter of nutrition, amonghst other things. I use this on my teeth and nothing else: http://www.naturaltoothsoap.com
I hope it gets better!

Totally agree. I wouldn't wait, because then it can turn into a much more serious problem and definitely a lot of money.

Here's a whole thread about curing cavities with nutrition. If you really want me to, I find find other proofs and testimonials of others who have remineralized their teeth to heal their cavities.
