I've had at least 5 or 6 cavities, never any fillings though. When the dentist told me about the cavities I opted not to do treatment and instead heal them on my own through natural methods. He acted like I was crazy and now here I am a few years later, no more cavitiies or tooth pain! Ha ha!
very interesting, i have a similar story but i have completely lost a filling and decided just to leave it an not get it refilled, it has been two years and it has not become any worse there is absolutely no pain. the general belief is that once the outer enamel has been breached, supposedly you can kiss the rest of the tooth good bye, im still waiting for that day, im sure its a weaker area but it just has not been a problem yet. still keeping an eye on it though.
this may not be common knowledge to most people, but our saliva contains calcium for the sole purpose of remineralizing our teeth, it is when the bacteria in our mouths produce more acid then the saliva can keep up with is when a cavity usually forms. the acids that bacteria produce bind with minerals in your teeth, and contribute to caries/cavities.
