Have a tooth with a hole in its top. I am planning to put a few drops of 100% alcohol inside to kill bacteria. Should the alcohol be diluted? If so, what should the percentage be?

Alcohol will not kill the bacteria inside the cavity as it will never reach the depths of the cavity itself. It might only kill bacteria on the top-most portion which will not only be ineffective long-term, but you may also injure yourself.

If you have a cavity the best solution is goto your Dentist. I've had a cavity for quite a few months and got by without doing nothing, I did try over the counter Dental filler which worked but it's no good long term. It eventually caught up with me which I knew it would do and I went to the Dentist a week ago and now it has been cleaned and filled.
