Detroit, MI (PRWEB) December 16, 2012
Roman Shlafer, DDS, PLLC, is a dentist that is now working on prevention, teaching patients that this system is a great help in the reduction of cavities or tooth decay. The dental term for the bacterial infections that cause cavities is "caries." When they are detected early, they can easily be treated and removed. The CariFree Cavity Prevention system also provides maintenance so that caries cannot become re-established. This can help reduce the number of cavities for all patients with caries risk factors.
Healthy bacteria are normally found in the mouth, but can become bacteria that produce acid and infections. There are a number of reasons for the shift, including a diet high in sugar, medications, a change in the patient’s medical condition or a lack of saliva. When the bacteria become acid-producing, caries can occur, which lead to the dental decay that many people experience.
Patients who don't like going to the dentist to get dental cavities filled will appreciate the ability to prevent those cavities before they happen. Patients can visit the dentist for a CariScreen test that takes only about a minute to perform. The test involves gathering a specimen from two teeth with a cotton swab. The sample is tested to determine whether there is a high, moderate or low risk from the bacteria that cause decay.
The dental treatment uses two types of CariFree rinses. The antibacterial mouth rinse used for the initial treatment actually eradicates the caries that are on the teeth. Once the infectious bacteria have been removed, it is time to move to the next phase of the treatment. The second phase is the maintenance phase of the procedure. During this part of the treatment, the CariFree Maintenance Rinse is used. This rinse helps the mouth to develop an environment that prevents the caries from becoming re-established. In other words, it helps the mouth remain free of the harmful bacteria so that the possibility of future tooth decay is highly reduced.
