Dental caries is as old as human race, it is considered by the World Health Organization as the first oral health problem, its increase has been associated with social development and variations in dietary habits of populations. In studies carried out in recent years, a tendency to decrease this disease has been determined. The fundamental problem in the diagnosis and treatment of dental caries is the decision of when and how to seal a tooth affected by caries. The primary objective is to broaden the vision of the therapeutic possibilities and to deepen the theoretical and practical knowledge about preventive, non-invasive and invasive curative treatments used against dental caries. A literature review of printed texts and internet search on dental caries, frequency and appropriate behavior of general stomatologists was carried out. It is concluded that every general stomatologist should know the importance of the promotion and permanent prevention in patients to avoid tooth decay, as well as the indications, technique of use and requirements to apply restorative materials in daily practice.
