What’s new at Smile Sarasota?

Ever wonder why you still get cavities no matter how meticulous your at home oral care is? Are you frustrated because you know others who rarely brush or floss and never seem to have any dental issues? Is being prone to cavities a real myth? Cavities are caused by bacteria imbalance in your mouth. When your dentist fixes your cavity, they only repair the direct spot of the infection, not the imbalance of the bacteria itself.

Many can find this a very frustrating problem to deal with. Until recently, dentists have tried to combat the problem by encouraging good oral hygiene. However, sometimes it is not that simple. CariFree designed products with elevated pH levels to neutralize decay-causing bacteria by going directly to the source. CariFree’s CTX 4 gel toothpaste comes in two options, 1100 and 5000 to offer different levels pH neutralizers to fight bacteria. CTX 4 gel toothpastes are safe to use every day, are non-abrasive, and are highly effective and scientifically proven to combat the start of cavities through remineralization.
