Screening and Treatment System
Assesses patients based on risk factors, biofilm challenge, and the presence of decay and/or decay history.
The CariFree Screening and Treatment System is a full CAMBRA System for practices looking to offer risk assessment and treatment to their patients. Included in this system are our CRA Form and Caries Management Guide, which will serve as your guides for assessment, diagnosis, and therapy.
The Screening and Treatment System utilizes the CariScreen Caries Susceptibility Test as part of the Caries Risk Assessment Process. This test is a simple 1-minute chair-side bacterial test for assessing patients' caries risk. The patent pending CariScreen uses ATP bioluminescence to identify oral bacterial load and has been proven to correlate with patients' risk for decay. The test is quick and painless. You simply take a swab sample of the plaque from your patients' teeth, which when combined with special bioluminescence reagents within the swab, will create a reaction which is then measured with the meter. The CariScreen will give a score between 0 and 9,999. A score under 1,500 is considering relatively healthy, while above that shows considerable risk for decay. This technology not only allows you to measure your patients' risk for decay today, but also helps measure their progress as they follow the recommended protocols for reducing risk.

Complete: Provides a complete assessment of each patient's risk for future decay, as well as multiple therapy options from which the patient can choose.
Proven: This system is designed based on statistical CAMBRA population studies performed on over 12,000 patients.
Changes the Conversation: When patients understand how their own individual risk factors place them at a specific risk for disease (e.g. high/extreme risk patients have an 88% chance of new caries symptoms within the next 12 months), the responsibility for the disease is transferred back to the patient.
Monitoring: Practices can monitor patient's therapy progress and modify if progress is not being made to increase the likelihood of success.
