Seeing the Future: How a Revolutionary New Bacterial Screening Device Can Predict a Patient’s Future for Tooth Decay

Rockford, IL (PRWEB) March 14, 2013

Tooth decay is an epidemic in American children with 50% of 5th graders showing active signs of the disease. The World Health Organization says that worldwide 60–90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have cavities. What are the long-term effects of this transmissible infection?

Research is showing a strong connection between the oral bacterial imbalance and serious systemic issues like heart disease. So why is this disease so rampant, yet it is also 100% preventable? Answer: there has been no way to properly screen patients for their risk, or susceptibility to the infection before the cavity forms.

Dr. Teuscher and his team were not satisfied with the excessive and avoidable statistics and knew they could do better. In an effort to provide the absolute best care modern science can offer they are now proud to provide the only in-office, chair-side caries susceptibility screening test on the market.

Developed by CariFree, a caries research company, the CariScreen test measures the levels of cavity-causing bacteria in the biofilm in seconds. With this instant diagnostic, Dr. Teuscher can stop the process and remedy the problem before decay sets in; something that has never been possible until now.

According to Dr. Teuscher: "I believe there is a RIGHT way to provide health care, and it begins with open communication and accurate diagnosis. CariScreen helps me see where a patient’s health stands, what got them there, and how we can work together toward freedom from disease.”

Never before has such predictive information been available to patients or practitioners. Dr. Teuscher can also tell his patients what the statistical likelihood is that they will develop new decay in the next year. Dr. Teuscher says, “In our practice the needs of the patient come first. CariScreen is as simple as swiping a cotton swab across a couple of teeth. Since we have been conducting individualized risk assessments and providing personalized plans of action, our patients are achieving a level of oral health they never dreamed was possible. They are getting healthy and staying that way."

For decades the only approach to managing dental caries was to work backwards: drilling out decayed areas of the tooth and patching the cavity. The traditional approach did not tell the patient exactly why they had the disease or what specific things they could do to get better. The drill and fill model, as Dr. Doug Young DDS, MS, MBA (leading expert on dental caries) states, is like “Building a deck on a house while it is burning down.”

While national statistics on decay rates continue to climb, Dr. Teuscher and his team in Rockford, Illinois are determined, with the implementation of the CariFree CariScreen test, to stop this devastating disease in its tracks. Patients who see Dr. Teuscher can expect the best assessment, diagnosis and therapy recommendations at their next appointment.
