Tooth Decay is the number one chronic disease affecting American youth, surpassing both obesity and asthma. For Dr. Milos M. Boskovic and his team, those statistics are no longer daunting. They have taken the top caries research in the world and implemented a cavity prevention program developed by CariFree that is shown to decrease incidents of tooth decay by up to 74%. The system is known as CAMBRA or Caries Management by Risk Assessment. “As we now have clear understanding regarding oral biofilm, and specifically biofilm that exists on teeth (“dental biofilm”), we have also full understanding of etiology of dental caries disease. Knowing it, we [have been] given the tools to fight this epidemic...and to prevent it. As a prosthodontist I wish I could have had [the same] applied knowledge 30 years ago, as I do today. It was, and still is devastating to see right in front of your own eyes a beautiful restorative case being undermined and ruined by simple “decay”. This can and needs to be stopped. We can get our patients involved from the very beginning as they are integral part of the entire process throughout their lives.”
CAMBRA is rooted in a medical model of risk assessment. It requires the dental professional to assess each and every patient’s risk factors for the 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
