    I'd like to find out dentists' own opinions on the available (and experimental) solutions to get rid of cavities permanently, or at least for several years.

    My concern right now is that every few months, seemingly regardless of how much I brush and floss and use mouthwash, I get another cavity, and have to deal with another dental visit. Sometimes, due to my hectic lifestyle, I tend to ignore them, and they become root canals, and it's even more expensive and painful... There has GOT to be a solution to this, once and for all.

    Can I have the interdental spaces filled in with GIC? Appearance be damned, 90% of my cavities start between teeth, if I could block out those spaces, I'd be a happy camper for the next few years.

    Implants are expensive. I don't have $ 30K to spend on implants right now...

    What else is there? I don't care how weird or outlandish it is, or if it's a painful procedure to start with, or if it impacts appearance - I just want to not have to think about going to the dentist for the next 3-5 years at least.
