Cavitation is the result of the disease; therefore restoration of a lesion alone will not arrest the disease. However, restoration of cavitation is a necessary part of elimination of the disease because it will not be possible to stabilize the oral flora in the presence of untreated caries. Therefore restoration should be undertaken in conjunction with measures to cure the disease. Simple placement of restorations is of no avail because the disease will continue and further lesions will develop.
