Can you suggest some ways for protecting the tooth from decaying? I mean. Some natural methods for reversing the tooth conditions. (Some traits of tooth decaying is been found. A small black spot on the top of my lower right penultimate interior teeth.)

Hi you can brush twice daily with a proper method and start gargling once after each meals. Once black spots appeared it's not possible to reverse. You need to fill the teeth.
First the damage done has to b tt by a dentist with filling n than brush twice daily especially at night for future protection.
Dear lybrate user, brushing twice daily with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, flossing, rinsing your mouth after every meal, eating foods rich in calcium like dairy products, avoiding sugary and sticky foods and most importantly visiting your dentist for routine dental checkup every 6 months are the simplest, easiest ways of keeping teeth healthy and avoiding decay.
