Seeing the Future: How a Revolutionary New Bacterial Screening Device Can Predict a Patient’s Future for Tooth Decay

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 08, 2013

Tooth decay is an epidemic in American children with 50% of 5th graders showing active signs of the disease. The World Health Organization says that worldwide, 60–90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have cavities. What are the long-term effects of this transmissible infection?

Research is showing a strong connection between the oral bacterial imbalance and serious systemic issues like heart disease. So why is this disease so rampant, yet it is also 100% preventable? Answer: there has been no way to properly screen patients for their risk, or susceptibility to the infection before the cavity forms.

Dr. Johnathan Campbell and his team were not satisfied with the excessive and avoidable statistics and knew they could do better. In an effort to provide the absolute best care modern science can offer they are now proud to provide the only in-office, chair-side caries susceptibility screening test on the market.

Developed by CariFree, a caries research company, the CariScreen test measures the levels of cavity-causing bacteria in the biofilm in seconds. Katie Poulsen RDH, a hygienist that works with Dr. Campbell says, “It's an easy test. The test provides helpful information in our efforts to help our patients stay cavity free." With this instant diagnostic, Dr. Campbell can stop the process and remedy the problem before decay sets in; something that has never been possible until now.

According to Dr. Campbell: “I have so many patients that report brushing and flossing and they still get cavities.The CariScreen test finally allows me to easily identify another aspect of the cavity process and to treat it. I have some patients that, in the past, have had a cavity at every check-up that are finally getting to hear those important words after an exam, "You don't have any cavities.”

Never before has such predictive information been available to patients or practitioners. Dr. Campbell can also tell his patients what the statistical likelihood is that they will develop new decay in the next year.

For decades the only approach to managing dental caries was to work backwards: drilling out decayed areas of the tooth and patching the cavity. The traditional approach did not tell the patient exactly why they had the disease or what specific things they could do to get better. The drill and fill model, as Dr. Doug Young DDS, MS, MBA (leading expert on dental caries) states, is like “Building a deck on a house while it is burning down.”

While national statistics on decay rates continue to climb, Dr. Campbell and his team are determined, with the implementation of the CariFree CariScreen test, to stop this devastating disease in its tracks. Patients who see Dr. Campbell can expect the best assessment, diagnosis and therapy recommendations at their next appointment.

About Dr. Campbell:
Dr. Jonathan G. Campbell is a Salt Lake City dentist. He has been practicing since 1999. He went to Cottonwood High School, here in Salt Lake City, then the University of Utah, and then Creighton University for Dental School. He is married to Melanie Welch of Murray. They have five children. He also enjoys computers, skiing, and vacationing with family. Galen Campbell, the founder of Legacy Dental, is his father. It has been an honor and privilege working alongside him.

Dr. Campbell says, "I really enjoy being a dentist. I love to have a patient come in, who worries that we can't help them or that it might be uncomfortable, and then they fall asleep in the chair or are able to laugh while we work and they watch a movie. I also really enjoy helping people with tricky cosmetic dental issues. Seeing someone be able to smile confidently again is a real pleasure."
