Granbury, Texas Dentists Are Saving Lives with Their Cutting-Edge Approach to Tooth Decay

Granbury, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

Granbury Dental Center is not the typical dental office. The doctors not only see themselves as oral health specialists, but as whole-body wellness practitioners. Dr.'s Baird, Buske and Klassen know that 90% of systemic conditions are linked to symptoms in the mouth. The mouth is a crucial part of any diagnostic process for physicians and dentists when it comes to overall wellness. If symptoms such as bleeding gums, fungal infections, decay, inflammation or missing teeth present in the mouth, it could be a warning sign that a patient is at risk for things like heart disease, diabetes or osteoporosis.

Because of the responsibility to patient’s health, Granbury Dental Center has adopted practices that help simultaneously manage a patient’s risk for oral imbalance while cluing them in to possible systemic risk. The newest tool being used at the office is a caries (cavity) risk assessment program developed by CariFree that is shown to decrease incidents 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 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. Based on the assessment Dr.'s Baird, Buske and Klassen, can tell a patient what their statistical likelihood is of developing tooth decay 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.

When a patient's risk for decay and other oral health issues are lowered, the risk of diseases like heart disease and diabetes are mitigated. In addition, keeping a close eye on changes in the mouth with these assessment tools makes early detection a priority. The doctors of Granbury Dental Center and their team provide a patient centered approach to dentistry that will direct each patient to his or her most healthy self. The doctors agree that "At Granbury Dental Center we know that teeth and gums are a reflection of total body health and wellness."
