Is there anything that can be done (besides the obvious flossing and brushing) to keep a cavity from getting bigger until you can get it filled?

If the cavity is an open hole you may get some relief by using some over-the-counter temporary filling material such as Dentemp. This may make you more comfortable, but won't significantly slow the decay process.

If there is no pain a couple of weeks one way or the other is unlikely to make much of a difference. A couple of months--maybe. You shouldn't plan on waiting.

Reply:I'd say stop eating sugar. That will only make it bigger and then cause pain.
