Any antiseptic mouthwash is good for good oral hygiene,  but not for cavities already formed.  Cavities are best filled with a good composite material with good strength. And no opinion is complete without a complete clinical examination.  Feel free to consult me if needed.

The cavity needs to be filled asap, otherwise it will become deeper and bigger gradually and also would lead to tooth ache.
As far as mouthwash is concerned, you can use chlorhexidine mouth wash.

No,it's better to restore the tooth with some restorative material. If the tooth in question is paining then you need an endodontic treatment. N.B. for oral rinsing only chlorhexidine or triclosan solution is advised. No other solution should be used inside oral cavity. Though rinsing has nothing to do in cavities.
