Caries Risk Management™

P4 Dentistry™


Cavities, also known as dental caries, are caused by a bacterial imbalance on the teeth. This imbalance occurs based on each individual’s oral environment, dietary habits, and hygiene habits. By understanding what causes an imbalance in the oral environment, and by making adjustments, the bacterial imbalance can be controlled and a patient’s cavity rate can either be reduced or eliminated. This process known as Caries Risk Management™ allow you to tailor treatment based on your personal risk.

Other methods like P4 Dentistry™ ensure that the CRM™ process is predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory. With this approach, healthcare starts with predicting possible problems and utilizing tools like a risk assessment form. This simple surveillance can find the earliest signs of a problem to allow for treatment.
