Clove is great for oral pain, try peppermint oil too, that is the ultimate eo in oral health.

cavities don't heal :(  they only get worse if left unattended.

Not true. Look up healing cavities naturally.

Yep. The whole bacteria/cavity link was just something the ADA took a vote on to make policy way back when, even though the one tiny study suggesting that was never substantiated and there were several larger much more conclusive studies suggesting that cavities were the result of nutrition (hint "good" nutrition to promote oral health looks nothing like what the government and mainstream nutritionists say)

OP, since healing a cavity is the body refilling a bone (just like a fracture, nobody questions the body's ability to heal any other bone), I don't think that's gonna be possible that quickly.

raw garlic/onion will help with any immediate type of infection or pain of a tooth ache, chewing on compfrey leaves will help drain an internal absess and refill the bone growth of a cavity as well as help regenerating the growth of gums.  oil pulling also helps with gum inflamation and regenerated the growth of gums.  my gums used to bleed horribly every time i flossed or brushed my teeth and within a week of oil pulling with coconut oil all bleeding stopped!

as for your question, these things all take time.  just because you are going to the dentist doesnt mean you HAVE to agree to get a filling put it.

This i used raw garlic when i was pregnant and had a tooth infection.
It worked AMAZING for the pain....once you get past the burn of chewing up fresh garlic that is

it really does!  my sister had impacted wizdom teeth that got infected and within an hour after packing it with garlic and onion her tooth pain was GONE.  i have known two other people who have done it after i told them about it and it also worked well for them!

plus its perfect for a pregnant lady instead of medication :)
