Which homeopathic remedies are best to use to facilitate the resolution of cavities or a predisposition to tooth decay issues and how to best administer to children.
Many people do not consider homeopathy for cavities, but there are two remedies that can be of assistance especially when other natural methods of treatment are not producing any results.
Prevention and cure of cavities are based on diet as discovered, researched, and documented by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS.
In certain instances, homeopathic treatment can provide valuable assistance to the healing journey but cannot be viewed as a substitute for a nourishing, Traditional Diet.
Teeth Represent the Overall Health of the Body
The quality of the teeth represents the status of the bone structure of the body.
Therefore, it’s important that the teeth be sound. If they are, the bones will be sound, too.
Sometimes, parents are concerned when their child’s teeth show frequent and large cavities in spite of a decent diet.
This is rare when children are raised on unprocessed, fresh from the farm grass-fed dairy, but it can occur in children who have certain predisposing genetics.
In this case, deep-acting constitutional remedies would be in order.
If the caries are not of a particularly worrisome level, much can be done to remedy the problem with homeopathic treatment at home.
Homeopathic Remedies for Cavities
It generally takes a good amount of time for homeopathic treatment to strengthen and aid in the growth of teeth in children.
The remedies Calc phos 6x and Calc fluor 12x are best for this purpose.
They should be taken three times a day for many months to achieve the desired tooth-strengthening effect.
These two remedies make a powerful homeopathic treatment, particularly in combination.
This is because Calc phos “is concerned with the formation of bone and teeth and is an important remedy for children”, while Calc fluor “is found in the surface of bones and in the enamel of teeth”.
These remedies are specific for growth as well. This is important because it’s common for children who have tooth challenges to display other growth issues too.
When my children were growing, I had them take these remedies on a daily basis for years.
I did this in spite of the fact that they were raised on nourishing, easy-to-digest raw milk.
During these years, it appeared that two of our boys’ teeth were growing in a crooked fashion. In fact, I’m sure that if we hadn’t chosen our holistic dentist, we would have been pressured into putting braces on their teeth.
Instead, I believed that as they grew, their teeth would grow and straighten accordingly. And that’s exactly what happened.
Our boys have fine, strong, and straight teeth without the “aid” of orthodontia.
We saved ourselves not only thousands of dollars but allowed their bodies to complete the work of bone alignment on their own.
Administering Cavity Remedies for Children
A simple technique for administering this homeopathic treatment is to add them directly to jugs of milk.
In one gallon of milk, add 10 pills of each remedy, stir and the job is complete.
As your children ingest their milk throughout the day, they’ll get these two remedies in each sip.
If despite your efforts, dental caries sneaks in, Philip Wander, founding member and chairman of the British Homeopathic Dental Association, recommends applying liberal amounts of Plantago tincture (suggested brand) directly on the cavity using a cotton ball.
This can be done temporarily until necessary and professional dental care is employed.

What Causes Crooked Teeth?
How I Healed My Child’s Cavity Naturally
Is it true that these can help regrow children’s teeth? My son has chipped a corner of his tooth.
You CANNOT regrow teeth. Even in Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, Dr. Price noted that the traditional societies did NOT regrow teeth… but the broken area healed over. Same with cavities, the decayed area heals over and fills in.
Is this beneficial for adults at all too?
Yes it is.
These cell salts are very helpful, but should not be taken continuously. Take for five days and off two days or the body can possibly experience a proving.
Note…this article was written by a licensed classical homeopath.
My 8y old has yellowish colored teeth at her front teeth and eating nutrient dense food… Would this homeopathy help? From which age can we start?
It is always best to see a true classical homeopath before using any remedies for a deep issue like cavities, because they will get the totality of all your symptoms and find the one remedy that will treat you as a whole person. Sometimes this will be supplemented by adding some cell salts in, but they will be able to direct you with that in the proper way. There could be a bigger issue that will be better addressed with another remedy; other than just cell salts. I’ve learned the hard way about trying to treat my family myself with homeopathic protocols and combinations. This treats homeopathy like allopathic medicine, where you’re treating a condition that a person has, rather than the person that has a condition. We now see a classical homeopath, who is truly, and finally addressing our health issues, including my husband’s cavities. The rewards are wonderful!! This is the best place to find a good homeopath to work with. Many are also willing to work with you at a comfortable rate for your income if you can’t pay full price. https://www.homeopathicdirectory.com/search
I totally agree with you Lynn, and this also from my personal experience!
Your pic has calc fluor 6x and ur post shows 12x…which is recommended?
Calc fluor 12x https://amzn.to/2oH8Dpx
hi wanted to ask approximately how many months does it take to treat cavities….
Can you use Calc Flour 6x instead? I cannot find at 12x at the store.
There is liquid homeopathics free of sugar.
I use a variety.Take a tube of toothpaste non mint. Create a space after using it two or three times.Get liquid calc.phos.6X,Calc.fluor.12X,silicea12X a great ‘ trinity’ for teeth,bones,etc.Place several drops in opening then recap shake tap on surface and squeeze to mix into the natural paste.
Vary This with a 50/50 mix of natural organic baking soda,sea salt or Real salt-it’s unheated as most salt today is heated at 1,200 F-warps sodium structure. To this base add two capsules of activated charcoal. Charcoal pulls out elements that discolor in teeth. Make sure you wear a top you don’t care if it gets discolored by using charcoal. Do this three times a week. Also,for guns use lomatium root in spring water 10 drops swish in mouth for two three minutes before bed.
I use Andreas 5 seed oil as it not processed or filtered in any way. I take a teaspoon and pull or swish it around in my mouth until l feel it’s fully absorbed. Add in the teaspoon lomatium herb. In 6 months and sooner you will notice great results.
I’m assuming these homeopathic are good for adults who also tend toward teeth decay or issues? Cal phos and calc Fluor ?
Is baking sod and salt save for children q teeth?
