Local Dentist is Saving Lives with His Cutting-edge Approach to Dental Caries
Date:7/17/2013

Portales, New Mexico (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Dr. Peter Thompson and his team are not the typical dental office. They not only see themselves as oral health specialists, but as whole- body wellness practitioners. Dr. Thompson says: “People tend to forget that the mouth is the gateway to the entire body, and when the mouth is infected, the body suffers the consequences. Medicine has ignored this until just recently, when they have started to acknowledge that there is a definite link between the health of the one and the other.”

Dr. Thompson and his team know that 90% of systemic conditions are linked to symptoms in the mouth. The mouth is a crucial part of any diagnostic process for physicians and dentists when it comes to overall wellness. If symptoms such as bleeding gums, fungal infections, decay, inflammation or missing teeth present in the mouth, it could be a warning sign that a patient is at risk for things like heart disease, diabetes or osteoporosis.

Because of the responsibility to patient’s health, Dr. Thompson is taking advantage of the best resources research has to offer. The newest tool being used at the office is a caries (cavity) risk assessment program developed by CariFree that is shown to decrease incidents of tooth decay by up to 74%. The system is based on a medical model of risk assessment called CAMBRA or Caries Management by Risk Assessment.

The CariFree system requires the dental professional to assess each patient’s risk factors for the dental caries 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. Based on the assessment Dr. Thompson can tell a patient what their statistical likelihood is of developing tooth decay over the next 12 months. Patients can then measurably lower their risk for decay by utilizing professional products and behavior modification.

When a patients risk for decay and other oral health issues are lowered, the risk of diseases like heart disease and diabetes are mitigated. In addition, keeping a close eye on changes in the mouth with these assessment tools makes early detection a priority. Dr. Thompson and his team provide a patient centered approach to dentistry that will direct each patient to his or her most healthy self.
