Did you know that we have a screening test that can tell you whether or not you are at RISK?
New research on what causes cavities reveals that all patients are at risk for developing cavities during their lifetime. A simple cavity that is untreated can be devastating to a patient’s well-being.
If you have had a cavity in the last three years, you may be at high risk for more cavities in the next 12 months. We can perform a quick diagnostic screening test using a swab from your teeth.
We also have a written assessment that details many of the causes of cavities and can help us determine your risk.
Together, these two assessments help us determine the balance between the patient’s individual risk factors and protective factors keeping you healthy. The most important part of knowing your risk is that you have options to reduce your chance of getting more cavities before they happen!
We have been helping our patients since 2007 with this new technology.
