A cavity is an infectious disease that progressively destroys a tooth by creating a lesion of the enamel, the dentine or the cement. It develops when the acidity created by bacteria, streptococcus mutans, found in dental plaque begin to damage the enamel.

The best way to prevent a cavity is to maintain a good dental hygiene. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and to floss daily.

Furthermore, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly to detect cavities and prevent their progression.
