Black tooth decay: Necessary to remove, in order for teeth to heal?

If a person has severe decay, down to the nerve, and you can see soft, black material coating the cavity, will it be necessary to remove this black material before decay will arrest? If so, how can it be removed? Scraping would be very painful, and likely to inflame the dentin, right?
Can the cavity be sterilized, and render the black material harmless? Maybe tea-tree oil chewing gum placed into the cavity? Or ionic silver? Or a homeopathic remedy?
Are there cases of decay arresting and the black material simply hardening?

It is hard to say.
If you touch the area gently and it is hard then that indicates some hope.
Black can be remineralized, or healing decay, but not necessarily.
Think of a scab.

You can get an ozone gas treatment, or other chemical treatment on the tooth to seal the tooth. Ionic silver may work as well.

That does not sound good.
There are cases where holistic dentistry is helpful, this might be one.

good luck,

A little more about the book:
Forget about drilling, filling, and the inevitable billing. Your teeth can heal naturally because they were never designed to decay in the first place! They were designed to remain strong and healthy for your entire life. But the false promises of conventional dentistry have led us down the wrong path, leading to invasive surgical treatments that include fillings, crowns, root canals and dental implants.
