Brush twice regularly. Before you go to sleep brush properly every day without fail. Avoid sticky and sweet foods or always rinse well after you eat them. Keep a check on any increase in cavities by visiting a dentist every 6 months.

Visit dentist and get cavity filled. Also take fluoride therapy to prevent caries.
cavity is irreversible. Once it is formed, it progresses without treatment. All preventive techniques are valid before cavity formation only!!
