Cavities Find out how your Pittsburgh dentist can prevent cavities from ruining your smile.

While cavities often affect the vast majority of people at some point in their lives, cavities don’t have to be just a fact of life. With the proper oral care you may never even have to deal with cavities. Find out how your Pittsburgh dentist, Dr. Michael F. Hnat is making it even easier to protect your smile from decay.

What are cavities?

When you eat or drink anything acidic, the acid attacks demineralize healthy tooth enamel. Over time, these frequent acid attacks can cause enamel to wear down so much that it causes tiny holes to form in your teeth. These holes are known as cavities and they are caused by decay. While brushing and flossing is key to preventing cavities, once cavities have formed, the only way to properly treat them is by seeing your Pittsburgh dentist.

What is Carifree® Cavity Prevention?

Cavities are 100 percent preventable, but they still affect the majority of the population. That’s why we recommend that patients be proactive when it comes to targeting harmful dental bacteria and acidity to help protect healthy tooth enamel. This is where Carifree® comes in. This cavity prevention system treats the bacteria responsible for tooth decay. Your Pittsburgh dentist will take a cotton swab from your teeth to determine what your risk level is for these cavity-producing bacteria.

What does the Carifree® treatment entail?

There are two different kinds of Carifree® treatments: the Carifree® Treatment Rinse and the Carifree® Maintenance Rinse. The Treatment Rinse is used to kill dental bacteria, while the Maintenance Rinse is used to create a healthy, low-acid environment in the mouth to prevent bacteria from reforming. By reducing the bacteria in your mouth, patients can also reduce their risk of tooth decay.

How often do I need to use the Carifree® mouth rinse?

The Carifree® Treatment Rinse is used for about one minute each day, while the Carifree® Maintenance Rinse is used either once or twice a day, which will be determined by your Pittsburgh dentist. Carifree® is a simple way to prevent cavities and can easily be incorporated into your daily oral regime.
