Let me be perfectly clear before I ask: I am fully aware that the only way to actually fix the cavity is a visit to the dentist. I am not asking if this will fix the cavity.
I have a cavity on one of my teeth, but I am not able to get to a dentist at the moment. It's going to be a few weeks, because of a combo of money, insurance and getting into the only one I trust.
So my question is, if I were to use a fluoride mouthwash a few times a day (along with normal brushing, of course), will that keep the cavity from getting worse until I get into the dentist? Again, I know it won't fix it, but will it prevent further damage? And if not, is there anything that will?
