Waterloo Heights, a Neighborhood Smiles Dental Practice is Taking a Bold New Approach to the Cavity Epidemic

West Salem, Wisconsin (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Dental decay is the number one chronic disease affecting American youth; surpassing both obesity and asthma. For Dr. Chris Welch those statistics are no longer daunting. He has 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. He says: "I base all treatment plans on individual Risk Factors. Patients with high risk to decay are those on medications which cause dry mouth, soda drinkers, and patients with acidic bacteria. With CariFree, I can combat these acid attacks, and sometimes reverse the effects of early decay. Now that is exciting!"

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). Then based on the information gathered, their dental team will counsel them on an appropriate course of action to lower their risk. If professional products are recommended the practitioner will provide the patient 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. Welch has taken a bold and caring step for his patients and community.
