If there is decay already, then you have to go to the dentist and have it filed and filled if you want to save the tooth.
I am very sorry to have to tell you the obvious answer to "what is the best way to "cure" tooth decay."" As a medical professional, I would be putting myself into an dishonest situation if I did not tell you to see a qualified dentist as soon as you can. I know that dental treatments are not cheap but the only way to deal with tooth decay is to have a dentist take care of the decaying processes. Dentists are the only people trained, qualified and approved of, by law, to treat tooth decay. This sounds like a "too simple" answer, but it is the only good answer.
I which that there were alternatives to dental care, but there are no alternatives.
Have a good weekend.
I like milyas32's suggestion of the keekar twig as a preventive. I don't know of any other alternative other than pulling the decayed tooth. However oil of clove which you can find in tiny bottles in drug stores will numb the pain.
I hear that the cure for tooth decay is Orajel, although I haven't tried it yet, since the last time I had a tooth ache was when I was like 12 years old. So I guess I should say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Brushing regularly really helps and the right diet too, that is, rich in vegetables and fruits, sweets only every now and then for special occasions or to reward yourself. Still, brushing before you go to bed cannot hurt.
One really strange tip that I came across comes from my former Croatian roommate Djani, who had a really severe tooth ache once. The drug store was closed at that time so he ended up talking to a security guard watching the door, who advised him to put a cigarette butt on the tooth that's hurting and you know what, Djani swore that it worked. He never asked me for help with a tooth ache ever again. I don't know how that did the job, but according to Djani, it might have to do with the bacteria in the compromised tooth or teeth. Something in the cigarette butt either kills or absorbs the micro-organisms. You may want to ask the dentist about it, though, just to be sure. Still, I can't forget the smile of relief from my roommate's face to this day.
