We now have the ability to analyze a patient’s potential for bacteria that cause cavities and customize a home treatment plan to help eliminate that risk.
Your mouth has bacteria, and lots of it…some of it’s good, some not so much. The bad bacteria creates acid in your mouth and this acid is what actually causes cavities. And sugar is what these bacteria feast on. But brushing and flossing are not always enough to hold the bacteria at bay.
Sometimes a person’s pH level is unbalanced – meaning they have high levels of bad bacteria and acid in their mouth. This low pH level is what can then cause cavities. You can be a trophy-holding brusher and flosser, but if you’re pH level is off, you’re a sure contender for cavities. Maybe even you or someone you know has said, “I take such great care of my teeth, why do I still get cavities?” The answer is because the acid-producing bad bacteria have taken over.
But with a bacteria profiling system like CariFree, we can determine if you are at risk for cavities with a simple swab of your teeth. If you’re in danger of unbalanced PH levels, we can customize a home treatment for you to get those levels stabilized and significantly lower your risk for cavities. The purpose is to get you cavity free. You don’t need deflating news at every visit to the dentist. If you have always been a victim of cavities, this is your opportunity to turn that around.
