Seeing the Future: How a Revolutionary New Bacterial Screening Device Can Predict a Patient’s Future for Tooth Decay
Date:5/29/2013

Redondo Beach, California (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

Tooth decay is an epidemic in American children with 50 percent of fifth graders showing active signs of the disease. The World Health Organization says that worldwide, 60–90 percent of school children and nearly 100 percent 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 percent preventable? Answer: There has been no way to properly screen patients for their risk, or susceptibility to the infection before the cavity forms.

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

Dr. Fulbright says, "The CariScreen has helped identify our patients that are predisposed to cavities. Giving patients knowledge and a solution that can help prevent future cavities makes them feel more in control of their oral hygiene."

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. Fulbright and his team are determined, with the implementation of the CariFree CariScreen test, to stop this devastating disease in its tracks. Patients who go to Fulbright Dental can expect the best assessment, diagnosis and therapy recommendations at their next appointment. Dr. Fulbright's hygienist says, "Our patients are amazed at how easy to use and painless the CariFree products are. I love being able to give our cavity prone patients a preventive option."
