To date most dentists have treated the effects of Tooth Decay or Dental Caries rather than the disease itself.
The effects can be devastating especially in Young Children, resulting often in Phobic patients.
We know that only 50% of the population regularly attend the dentist. Many others only attend when it's too late and extraction, Root Canal Treatment or costly crown and bridgework are needed.
Now we are introducing a new concept where patients can treat the disease itself and reduce the effects.
Dr., Seward recently completed a training course with Professor John Featherstone from the University of California San Francisco.
Having Met Prof., Featherstone in 2006 at the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry in Seattle and keeping in touch with him in the intervening Years
Dr., Seward had been changing his approach to this disease. Now with this new information we will be implementing the CAMBRA (Caries Management by Risk Assessment) philosophy into our practice.
We will be utilising cutting edge research to help our patients reduce the effects of Tooth Decay and have healthier mouths with less need for us to intervene.
We will be educating our patients to the cause bad acid producing bacteria and showing how Caries is a transmissible disease and introducing the use of a regime depending on what category of risk, low, medium, high or extreme you fall into.
Use of antimicrobial rinses, Xylitol,Effective Oral hygiene , Ozone and Fluoride along with Education will help Patients help themselves to reduce greatly and hopefully eradicate the need for us to drill, fill or God forbid extract teeth.
In many cases treating Expectant Mothers can reduce the effects on the newborn by ensuring that they have a healthy bacterial flora and reducing the need for dental intervention.
