Treatment for Dental Cavities

Prevention is essential to protecting your smile

Cavities are one of the most widespread diseases in the world. Indeed, this disease affects a significant number of Canadian adults. Nevertheless, your dentists at Groupe dentaire API and their teams can help you prevent cavities and treat those that affect your teeth.

An untreated cavity may cause significant harm that can lead to even the irreversible loss of the affected tooth. We offer at both our Laval and Mascouche clinics treatment for cavities that allow us to prevent them while limiting the damage they can do.

The Effects of Dental Cavities

A dental cavity is an infection caused by the proliferation of bacteria on the surface of teeth. When bacteria are not properly removed, they attack gradually different parts of our teeth causing a lot of damage. The consequences of an untreated cavity are numerous.

  • Irreversible degradation of the tooth’s enamel
  • A dental pulp infection that causes sharp pain and may require root canal treatment
  • Dental abscess, which is an infection at an advanced stage
  • The irreversible loss of a tooth that will have to be replaced.
