AOA. Teeth are the only part of the human body that can not repair themselves once they develop caries (cavity). The best way to prevent further damage is to book an appointment with a dentist for dental filling as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, you can use a good quality fluoride toothpaste.

tooth paste cannot repair the black spot. tooth paste can only help prevent the next lesion in other teeth. so the treatment would be the filling of the tooth immediately before the onset of pain. regards dr Ali Murtaza

Tooth decay leads to cavity formation and loss of tooth substance what is irreparable. In such case a dental surgeon should be consulted immediately, who will fill the cavity with appropriate material. Delay can lead to painful tooth that inturn will require costly procedure to save the tooth.
Brushing teeth at proper time can save you from dental and gum diseases, remarkably.

Dear Pt, hope you are fine, dear toothpaste cannot repair the cavity, but Prodent or Sensodyne toothpaste only resolve your sensitivity issue & you must have to visit the dentist, if no pain so only filling is required . Dear don't worry i'm here to serve the humanity, GOD bless you ????
No tooth paste or medication but visit to dentist
