Dr. Althauser Launches Ground-breaking Cavity Prevention Program That Can Lower Decay Rates by 74%

Missoula, Montana (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

Dental decay is the number one chronic disease affecting American youth, surpassing both obesity and asthma. For Dr. Althauser of Three Rivers Dental Group those statistics are no longer daunting. He has taken the top caries research in the world and implemented a cavity prevention program developed by CariFree that is shown to decrease incidents of tooth decay by up to 74%. The system is known as CAMBRA or Caries Management by Risk Assessment. Dr. Althauser says: “CAMBRA allows me to treat the root cause of decay earlier in the disease process. This results in less shots, less drilling, and more predictable results. All benefits my clients really enjoy.”

CAMBRA is rooted in a medical model of risk assessment. It requires the dental professional to assess each and every patient’s risk factors for the disease and then develop a personalized treatment plan to systematically lower their risk. The CariFree diagnostic tools leverage biofilm testing (to determine the levels of cavity-causing bacteria in the patient’s mouth) as well as a risk assessment questionnaire to determine the overall statistical probability a patient will develop new cavities over the next 12 months. Never before has such predictive information been available. Patients can then measurably lower their risk for decay by utilizing professional products and behavior modification.

Patients can expect the entire process to take a few minutes in their appointment. They will answer targeted questions regarding their current habits (eating and drinking, medication use, chronic health issues etc.) as well as undergo a quick, painless swab of their lower teeth (to determine if they have an excess of cavity causing bacteria). If professional products are recommended the practitioner will provide the patient with a professional kit of product specifically designed to counteract their risk factors.

Science has proven that this disease cannot be stopped by the drill and fill approach. True cure requires a medical approach and a comprehensive assessment of each patient. Three Rivers Dental Group has taken a bold and caring step for their patients and community.

About Dr. Althauser:

Dr. Althauser grew up in the rural farming community of Pleasant Hill, Missouri. He graduated with a BS in biology from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1999 and received his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 2004. After graduation, Dr. Althauser moved to Missoula, Montana, to start his dental career as a staff dentist at Partnership Health Center. The majority of the work performed at the community clinic involved removing teeth beyond repair from patients in severe pain. Though it was rewarding to help patients with their immediate dental needs, Dr. Althauser envisioned a practice focused on preventing problems, restoring teeth and promoting long-term health.
