Testing Meter

Because you deserve to be cavity-free!

  • Simple, painless test to identify whether you have excess decay-causing bacteria
  • Instant results to understand your risk for decay today
  • For the first time ever . . . a way to tell if what you are doing is working

The CariScreen Caries Susceptibility Test is a simple, one-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. Your dentist will simply take a swab sample of the plaque from your 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 your practitioner to measure your risk for decay today, but also helps measure your progress as you follow the recommended protocols for reducing risk.
