Hi there ...firstly u need to get the cavity filled...because no paste, creme or any sugar free gum acts when there is an active infection in the mouth... Once the infection is cured...then u can go for GC tooth mousse plus creme to prevent further cavities.. Take care ...!!

Frankly anything sugar free is good for your teeth, caries is an irreversible process so only thing u can do is keep brushing your teeth twice daily specially before going to sleep. To some extent these gums can help you. But to reduce further decay of teeth just keep brushing.
