There is a product in market by the name of GC tooth mousse available with many dentists, you can use this after your regular brushing. You need to apply this paste onto your teeth massage it on to them. After 2 mins rinse it.
First and foremost need to get your fillings done, a flouride toothpaste is highly recommended How ever if you have high probability of getting decay you can use a flouride mouth wash for a month.
