Dr. Mark F. Rindge Launches Ground-Breaking Cavity Prevention Program That Can Lower Decay Rates by 74%

Los Gatos, Calif. (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

Dental decay is the number 1 chronic disease affecting American youth, surpassing both obesity and asthma.

For Dr. Mark F. Rindge of Los Gatos, Calif., and his team, those statistics are no longer daunting. They have 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.

“Never before have we had a tool to indicate that decay is imminent. We are excited to be able to prevent decay before it becomes a serious problem,” states Dr. Rindge.

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). Dr. Rindge says the experience is positive as: “Patients are happy to get their results in as little as 20 seconds!”

Based on the information gathered, the dental team will counsel them on an appropriate course of action to lower their risk. If professional products are recommended the practitioner will provide the patient with a professional kit of product specifically designed to counteract their risk factors.

The CariFree products contain all 5 essential therapeutic agents proven to treat dental caries. Depending on the patients diagnosis the proper level of therapy will be prescribed. 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. Dr. Mark F. Rindge and his team have taken a bold and caring step for their patients and their community.
