CAMBRA in Monarch Beach - Why Participate in CAMBRA?

What are the Benefits of a CAMBRA Evaluation?

If you are experiencing tooth decay and cavities even after following your dentist's instructions on great oral hygiene, you may have something else working against you that you didn't even know about. Dental caries is what causes tooth decay and cavities in your teeth, and are not just present because of bad oral hygiene habits. In fact, medications, genetics, and high acidity in your saliva can all be reasons why you experience more caries than others.

This is why it is so important to be evaluated to determine your risks for dental caries. Dentists like Dr. Cruz are able to complete what is called a CAMBRA examination. CAMBRA stands for "Caries Management by Risk Assessment." It is a series of tests done to give you an idea of the factors working against you when it comes to keeping your mouth and teeth happy and healthy. It is a great way to get the larger scope of understanding as to why you may be experiencing more cavities and tooth decay than other individuals in your life, regardless of your tooth care habits.

CAMBRA examinations are great to get the real picture of what is going on in your mouth. Not only will it help you figure out why you're experiencing more cavities than others, but it can be a great way to understand your mouth in order to improve long-term success with any kinds of restorative treatments that you plan on undergoing. Taking care of your restorative treatments done by the dentist is a great way to extend the life of them and make less visits to the dentist over the course of several years.

If you are considering a CAMBRA evaluation, call Dr. Cruz to schedule an evaluation appointment. You will be able to take control and become more proactive when it comes to your dental care when you participate in a CAMBRA evaluation with Dr. Cruz and his staff.
