I have friends and acquaintances having remineralized and healed their teeth, some of whom having quite some cavities. I really doubted it but decided to do some research instead and it is possible indeed.

The difference with me is that I have around 5 teeth, if not more which had their nerves removed. Is there any hope? Common sense says 100% impossible but please share if any solutions for that are known.


It depends on which part of tooth has the decay, if it is in enamel it can be remineralized because of this process doesn't need pulp tissue despite of the dentin decay which needs the pulp tissue to do that.

I mean enamel decay needs outer resources for reminerlization and dentin ones need pulp to do the process.
