You have to visit the dentist for filling of the cavity because once it occurs cannot be reversed. You can give Sea cod ,cod liver oil . Kindly monitor proper brushing and oral hygiene habit of the child . You can give calcium supplements like Shelcal syrup for preventing further cavities.

Kindly see a dentist for restoration of your child's teeth. There is no natural therapy for arresting decay..

You can give cod liver oil if u want but it's not going to resolve his cavity for sure. instead pl visit a dentist & get his thorough examination followed by treatment.

Hi. Cavities dont heal.. Please visit a nearby dentist.. start cleaning the child teeth two times a day.. do not give milk after brushing in night.. Most of the cavities occur due food and other milk products. Prevent cavities.. regards dr amit kumar.
