My husband had a molar that was bothering him. It as not at the gum line and was bothered by hot and cold and flossing. From past experience, he knew it was a cavity. I mixed him up a batch of Black Walnut Tooth Powder. He used this twice a day instead of toothpaste. Now, about six months later, he realizes that it doesn't bother him at all! It was helpful right away but it took a while for a complete cure. When we used Black Walnut tincture for a cavity on a four year old, it healed up in weeks not months. But kids do tend to heal faster.
Tooth Powder Recipe:
- 1 Tablespoon Black Walnut Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
- 1 Tablespoon Diatomaceous Earth
- 10 drops essential oil (I used orange for him as he does not like peppermint)
- 4 drops Stevia Extract (optional, but helpful)
This could be made without the Diatomaceous Earth. Just use 1 1/2 Tablespoons each of baking soda and black walnut powder. It will be saltier this way, though. Another option is to substitute Bentonite Clay for the Diatomaceous Earth. I am not settled in my mind if this would be okay if you already have fillings in your mouth because of the Bentonite's effect on mercury.

I am adding to my comment here a new tip for teeth renewal. Comfrey is also called knit bone. Dr. Christopher has some creams with it in it and you can put it on the skin near the mouth ( I do a lot at bedtime) and then during that timeframe also put some eggshells from farmed eggs in your mouth ( flour consistency ground up stage). My teeth have been splitting off and a couple had half the tooth break away even in the root area. My composite fillings fell out and I am letting my teeth heal instead of renewing the dental work. They have black parts that are now collecting white material back onto them like specks of white enamel. I pick food out of the holes with toothpick with clove oil on the tip. I also started rinsing after food with water with pinch of borax and epson salt....very little and then spit out and then more eggshells to remineralize.

My fiancee tried everything for her cavity but nothing worked. It was beneath a filling so hard to clean it. She felt she might have to remove the tooth. I gave her a 1:3 dilution of dmso water (tastes terrible! ) And she rinsed her mouth with it vigorously. After just a few minutes her pain was reduced. After a few weeks of use, her cavity was totally gone.
I have been using iodine to cure cavities for about 40 years. It works great. Organic iodine from the health food store is probably best but I've mostly used the ordinary stuff from the drugstore.
If you have active cavities and perhaps toothache as well, put 10 or 12 drops in a small amount of warm water (about a mouthful) and swish it around your mouth for 30 seconds or so. Then spit it out. You will notice most of the colour is gone. Do this many times throughout the day.
Soon your toothache will stop and you'll see recalcification on your teeth. Don't stop using the iodine but you will find you can cut back a lot. I usually now use a couple of drops twice a week.
If you have big cavities you should get them fixed when you can afford it. Otherwise, if you forget your iodine for a couple of weeks the cavities will start to bother you again.
I had a dentist remark that I had "many small cavities that have healed over" which surprised him.
I did this iodine treatment for about 25 years, then stopped for years to see what would happen (no problems) and have now started again once a week, two drops.
Don't swallow the iodine and water mixture! Spit it out! Don't stop using it unless you get large cavities fixed!
The only new cavity I've had in more than 40 years is one that was deep inside a gum. I guess the iodine couldn't reach it.

This works nicely! I swished a tablespoon of coconut oil around my mouth for ten minutes and now two cavities in a molar are now cleaned out. There is none of the black gunk left in the molar. Now that it is clean my tooth can heal hopefully.
I had previously brushed and brushed repeatedly and that black bacterial gunk just wouldn't budge.

My father practiced dentistry for well over 50 years in New Orleans, La. He took great delight in encouraging nutritional dentistry. The patients saliva sample was sent to a State of La. lab, which then forwarded their PH reading back to him. Today, PH strips do a faster job, and probably just as good.
My dad recommended elimination of all sweets, except for fruit and vegetables; plus rinsing the mouth after eating anything.
I've always had cavities until I read Rami Nagel's book. May he rest in peace. Raw milk, cod liver oil, no sugar... My dentist said I had no cavities, age over 35.
For 10+ years I have been able to avoid getting the cavities I used to get. For 10 years I kept buying Xylitol by the pound, added it to my food, 2 heaping tablespoons, twice a day, every day. But, no, I have never brushed my teeth with it.
Then, in the last 12 months, I switched to Erythritol, which - according to scientific research - is even better than Xylitol, for the prevention of cavities.
The only drawback is the price; prices have gone up 200% in the last two years.
I hope someone can use this!
