CariFree, Six Month Smiles

Companies will encourage proactive dentistry.

ALBANY, Oregon--CariFree has announced a partnership with Six Month Smiles.

The companies plan to work together to promote cavity prevention through the use of minimally invasive procedures. Their proactive approach to dentistry will help leave smiles healthy and cavity-free.

The CariFree system effectively targets patients’ risk for dental caries, the disease which causes cavities, and cures them of the infection. Through use of the preventive products, patients are ridding themselves of cavities before they start.

Dentists no longer need to solely rely on just reparative methods, such as drilling and filling cavities, and can now get to the root of the problem by utilizing CariFree’s suite of products and risk assessment tools to rid the disease. The company’s coupling with Six Month Smiles is an effort to further innovate the dental industry, continuing toward the evolution of minimally invasive dentistry.

“There is an industry-wide move towards noninvasive dentistry, and we’re proud to be leading the way,” said Carri Cady, vice president of sales and marketing for CariFree.

“Six Month Smiles shares many of the same ideals as CariFree about what being proactive means to dentistry. I believe our partnership can provide valuable awareness of the huge strides made in dentistry in recent years.”

Pairing Six Months Smiles with the CariFree system gains patients an oral makeover. CariFree and Six Month Smiles will hold partnered webinars to further illustrate the benefits of using the two systems in unison.

The first webinar will be at 5:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time Aug. 24, 2010, and will be hosted by Dr. Kim Kutsch, CEO and founder of Oral BioTech. The second, at 5:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Aug. 31, 2010, will be led by Dr. Ryan Swain.

“Adults want treatment options that are practical, conservative, and most importantly, short in length,” said Dr. Ryan Swain of Six Month Smiles. “Dentists around the world tell us that short term ortho with Six Month Smiles fills a real need among their adult patients who refuse to wear traditional braces. Considering our shared goals, teaming up with CariFree just makes sense.”

Six Month Smiles uses nearly invisible braces to align teeth in as little as six months. CariFree and Six Month Smiles have joined forces in the movement toward straight and cavity-free teeth. The common goal is to accomplish total oral health that can be seen for smiles and smiles.
