Dr. Richard Charmoy Launches Groundbreaking Cavity Prevention Program that Can Lower Tooth Decay Rates by 74%

(PRWEB) March 27, 2013

Dental decay is the number one chronic disease affecting American youth; surpassing both obesity and asthma. For Dr. Charmoy of Somerville, New Jersey those statistics are no longer daunting. He and his team 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. Dr. Charmoy states: “I think this is a revolution in dentistry, comparable to the introduction of fluoride. This system visually shows the patient, doctor and hygienist the level of bacteria that cause decay for each patient. If the levels can be reduced the patient is less likely to see decay in future. CariFree has developed a line of products to help lower this level in the patient’s mouth.”

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. Charmoy says: “There is no cost for doing this procedure, depending upon the level of bacteria, we can determine the proper products you need which the office can provide.”

Based on the information gathered, the dental team will counsel each patient on an appropriate course of action to lower their risk. If professional products are recommended the team will provide patients 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. Dr. Charmoy has taken a bold and caring step for their patients and their community. Dr. Charmoy says: “Dentists and hygienists work hard to help patients prevent decay. Because of CariFree, fluoride and sealants; we will eventually see a cavity free generation. This is also great for adults who have had a long history of decay and are seeing recurrent decay around those fillings. The bacteria are not related to age of patient, we all have some level of the bacteria so finding out the amount is critical. CariFree is a system that we can be beneficial to the whole family.”
