Are You Doing Everything Possible to Prevent Cavities?

The world of dentistry is growing with each and every passing year.  We are constantly learning new ways to improve our practice and the things we can offer to you, our patients.  One important change is in the fight against tooth decay.  We now know that cavities, or dental caries, can be prevented and even reversed if given the right set of circumstances. 

Over a 6-month period our team worked diligently to develop a program that would allow our patients at moderate to high risk for decay to benefit from the new knowledge that is available.  We are calling that effort our “Caries Prevention Program”.  This program will provide education on what causes you to develop cavities and what you can do to cut down on your decay rate. 

Some of the things we will cover during this program are saliva flow, saliva pH, sugar intake, snack frequency and timing, and food consistency.  We will also address dry mouth and how it is affected by medications and smoking.  We will supply you with the best toothpaste available to re-mineralize teeth.  Also, a recommended list of products that will help you cut down on your decay rate will be distributed.  Instructions specific for your needs will be reviewed with you. 

We will then follow up this education with an appointment designed to re-evaluate your risk factors and assess how well you are doing with our program to have fewer cavities, fewer dental visits and, ultimately, lower dental costs. 

I personally invite you to take advantage of this program.  It is designed to help patients like you who struggle with controlling their decay rate and are frustrated by the amount of time and money involved in constantly fighting cavities.  The small investment you make for yourself today will payoff many times over the course of your lifetime. 

We are proud to bring this program to you and promise to help you utilize it for maximum health now and throughout your lifetime. 

Thanks for reading!
