Tooth decay (also known as dental caries) is the most widespread chronic disease in children, adolescents, and adults in the U.S. Left untreated, dental caries can lead to an entire host of potentially more serious oral health issues, making it one of the primary concerns for both dentists and their patients. At Mindy Salzberg-Siegel, DDS, PC in Clinton Township, MI, Dr. Salzberg-Siegel and her team utilize advanced technology and a proven anti-cavity hygiene approach called CAMBRA (Caries Management By Risk Assessment). In conjunction with this system, we offer products from CariFree that specifically target the underlying issues behind recurrent tooth decay.
Benefits of CAMBRA and CariFree Technology
The primary advantage of the CAMBRA model is that it essentially emphasizes the need to consider all contributing factors in the case of dental caries as a state of disease. The patient’s individual level of risk – as well as the appropriate methods of treatment and prevention – is paramount to successful recovery from dental caries and the complications they may cause. The proven CAMBRA approach, utilized every day by Dr. Salzberg-Siegel and her team, takes into account the disease of dental caries in its entirety. It focuses on healing and reversing damage caused by chronic decay problems in a way that simultaneously aids in the prevention of further harm.
At Mindy Salzberg-Siegel, DDS, PC, we strive every day to help patients with recurrent decay overcome their condition in a way that actually suits their lifestyle. This is why we incorporate CariFree professional grade products into our patients’ oral hygiene regimens. This revolutionary line of anti-cavity products effectively alters and improves the oral environment to promote a healthier pH balance and to encourage the development of beneficial bacteria. CariFree rinses, tooth gels, oral wipes, sprays, and gum are especially beneficial to patients who:
- Experience chronic halitosis (bad breath)
- Suffer from gum disease
- Have cavities
- Have xerostomia (dry mouth)
- Experience difficulty properly brushing their teeth
- Simply want to ensure the long-term health of their teeth and gums
