A Weston Dentist Offering CariFree

Stephen J. Pyles,DDS is the one Weston Dentist where the wellness of our patients is always our highest priority. For that reason we have always integrated the most advanced dental technologies and preventative systems like CariFree into our practice. But not every Weston Dentist makes preventative dentistry their priority. Many practices are more interested in drilling and filling. At Stephen J. Pyles,DDS we would rather see you for regular check-ups and cleanings and preventative treatments like CariFree to reduce the need for expensive and difficult procedures in the future. Dr. Pyle is dedicated to preventing tooth decay and gum disease before it develops. Practicing the proper oral hygiene at home, scheduling regular in office check ups with Dr. Pyle and using CariFree are a big part of that. The CariFree System allows us to better anticipate your likelihood of getting tooth decay. It also enables us to make better preventive recommendations that will help improve your long-term dental health. Dr. Pyle is the only Weston Dentist who offers the CariFree system.

What is CariFree?

CariFree was developed to help patients avoid cavities. It works by assessing risks for tooth decay and determining the presence of bacteria. Bacteria can cause infection, which is what leads to cavities. Preventative dentistry like CariFree is part of a shift in dentistry away from the traditional practice of filling cavities we all grew up on.

How does CariFree work?

The CariFree System is very simple. We use a screening device along with a swab sample of your plaque to measure the levels of bacteria in your mouth. The screening takes under a minute and won’t cause any pain or discomfort. The screening is part of a Caries Risk Assessment. This assessment will help us to determine homecare and dietary counseling recommendations that can improve your oral health. It will also aid us in the treatment of infection. The information we gather goes a long way toward helping patients avoid major dental work by lowering their rate of tooth decay. CariFree is a perfect fit for our Weston Dental practice because it is an innovative, pain free and preventive technique. More importantly it improves our patients chances for having a life long healthy smile.
