Tooth decay, or cavities are caused by a bacterial infection in the teeth.
The CariFree system allows Dr. Acker to test for and treat a bacterial infection before it causes tooth decay. Take control of your wellness with the CariFree system.
How does it work?
The advanced CariFree system is a safe and effective method to measures the magnitude of harmful bacteria within your mouth. If harmful decay-causing bacteria are identified, the CariFree treatment plan may be prescribed by Dr. Acker. The CariFree system is prescribed to patients who present active periodontal disease in order to qualify the and quantify the level of bacteria causing the infection. Once this is determined, Dr Acker can prescribe the CariFree treatment program to stabilise the infection and reduce the risks associated with oral inflamation.
The quick and easy CariScreen test determines your level of decay-causing bacteria. It takes only one minute to determine if you are at a low, moderate, or high risk of developing cavities in the future.
Since risk factors change over time, it is recommended that you take the CariScreen test once per year.
For the most accurate test results, do not eat or brush your teeth for at least one hour prior to the test.
