These patients are already doing a good job of brushing yet still regularly get cavities. With this system we are able to get to the root of the disease and stop cavities before they even start.

There are many myths about cavities. Most believe cavities are caused by too much sugar, bad genes, or rotten luck. Unfortunately, these commonly held beliefs have led to a misinformed and cavity-ridden public. Globally, tooth decay is at pandemic levels. It is evident that most patients do not know what is causing their tooth decay or how to properly prevent it.

Dr. Michael Rose, realizes the knowledge gap among the general public regarding the disease, its effects and how to stop it.

Born and raised in the Las Vegas valley and educated at The University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, Dr. Rose now offers his patients something far different than the typical "brush, floss and don't eat sugar" prescription. In an effort to both reeducate and better treat patients, Dr. Rose is now implementing a caries (cavity) risk assessment program developed by CariFree that is shown to decrease incidence of tooth decay by up to 74%. The system is based on a medical model of risk assessment called CAMBRA or Caries Management by Risk Assessment. The CariFree system requires the dental professional to assess each and every patient’s risk factors for the dental caries disease (medication use, snacking habits, bacterial levels etc.) and then develop a personalized treatment plan to systematically lower their risk. Dr. Rose, can tell a patient exactly what is causing their disease as well as what their statistical likelihood is of developing more or new tooth decay over the next 12 months.

Dental caries is a multifactoral disease caused by an imbalanced oral environment. It is a disease best assessed, diagnosed and managed by identifying disease indicators and risk factors, and examining the balance between pathogenic and protective factors. Each patient is different and requires a complete assessment in order to determine why they are experiencing tooth decay. This process provides both patients and practitioners with a specific probability for future decay for that individual. Patients that are found to be at risk can then be presented with early intervention advice, educational materials, and prescription /professional products.

“Our patients love that we don’t just treat the disease and then tell them to brush and floss better. These patients are already doing a good job of brushing yet still regularly get cavities. With this system we are able to get to the root of the disease and stop cavities before they even start”, said Dr. Rose.

The facts about tooth decay are in; no longer does the public need to suffer from a painful yet preventable disease. Dr. Rose knows the CariFree system will tell each patient the truth about their decay and how to stop it.
