Working Towards a Cavity-Free World


I had the pleasure to speak with Dr. Bob Schroth, co-chair (Canada-US Chapter) of the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future (ACFF). Dr. Schroth spoke about the role of the alliance as well as its numerous advocacy initiatives. he also invoked the role of oral health research in the Alliance’s work and encouraged academics to apply for the ACFF oral health research grant. 

Dr. Schroth is Associate Professor in the Department of Preventive Dental Science and the Department of Pediatrics & Child Health, both in the Colleges of Dentistry and Medicine at the University of Manitoba.

    Dr Brian Novy has a website whollymolar.net that addresses the implementation of a cavity prevention program for patients and dentists. He has done a lot of research in this area of dentistry and most of his work is available on-line. I have attended his presentations twice in the last 2 yrs and have learned much about the caries mechanism and our potential to prevent its expression. In terms of products that can have an impact on caries prevention, I would recommend the use of an ionic silver solution as a mouth rinse The silver solution I refer to is processed by American Biotech Labs -ablsilver.com The research clearly shows their silver solution will kill bacteria , viruses, fungus, parasites Dr Andrew Willoughby ( B.C) has done several studies with their products for use in dentistry and has demonstrated its many applications. This silver solution has no side effects and is very safe. I’ve been using their products in my practice and personally for about 10 yrs and has proven to be extremely healthful and helpful
