Caries Risk Management (CRM)​

Cavities are the major source for lost teeth in adults, along with gum disease. Traditional dentistry looked for cavities and then repaired them. Not anymore. We now know better. Caries Risk Management is just that. Research is now conclusive and has identified several common risk factors that cause cavities. By identifying these risk factors individually for you, we can give you suggestions on how to minimize your risks for future decay. This fits well into the P4 principles of modern medicine and the 4 “P’s”. Dentistry should now be Predictive, Preventive, Personalized, and Participatory.

It isn’t just about floss and fluoride anymore. Do you dream of having a life without cavities? Wouldn’t that be wonderful. People today just accept getting cavities as a normal part of life. But it isn’t. Cavities are the clinical sign of a complex disease process termed “Dental Caries.” While most dentists look for these signs (cavities) and recommend treatment to restore the damage to your teeth, we take the next step and help you discover why you have cavities in the first place. If we can get that answer correct, we can help you take control of your health and create a cavity free future. And that’s the most important thing we can do for you

Advantages of Caries Risk Management

Compared to traditional drill and fill dentistry, you can enjoy these advantages:

  • Learn Your Risk Factors | The major risk factors causing cavities are lack of enough saliva, too much or too frequent sugar in the diet, inadequate home care and genetics.

  • It’s Easy! | Just fill out a self assessment risk form and we can help you identify where your specific risks are.

  • Develop a Plan | Then we can help you develop strategies specifically designed to help you minimize your risk for cavities. It’s true, it works and we’ve helped lots of cavity prone people become decay free!

  • Create a Cavity Free Future | Armed with the knowledge of why you’re getting cavities, we can work with you to correct that and create a healthy, vital, beautiful cavity free smile.

  • Say Goodbye to Uncomfortable Expensive Dental Procedures | Nobody likes sitting in the dental chair having cavities filled, or teeth crowned, or root canals or even worse, extractions. While we can’t eliminate every dental injury, let us help you avoid those experiences that you can control.
