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

Alexandria, LA (PRWEB) April 04, 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. John Moreau 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. Dr. Moreau's hygienist says: “This test is painless, quick and simple. We simply swab the surfaces of a few teeth and that is it, you are done! Within one minute we have your results!” With this instant diagnostic, Dr. Moreau can stop the process and remedy the problem before decay sets in; something that has never been possible until now.

According to Dr. Moreau: “We are excited to offer our patients this ground breaking cavity prevention program! It is painless but powerful in detecting harmful bacteria that causes tooth decay. Studies show that people who suffer from tooth decay are more likely to suffer from things like dementia and heart disease. Because we take our patient’s health seriously and are dedicated to their overall wellness, I am excited to be able to offer this quick, free test for my patients."

Never before has such predictive information been available to patients or practitioners. Dr. Moreau 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. Moreau 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. Moreau can expect the best assessment, diagnosis and therapy recommendations at their next appointment.
