DUI Cavities Georgia — Intoxilyzer 5000

DUI Cavities Georgia—Intoxilyzer 5000
The Intoxilyzer 5000, the breathalyzer test used in Georgia, is supposed to work by measuring deep lung air in order to calculate a driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC). Unfortunately, the machine can sometimes measure mouth alcohol, which inflates the BAC reading. Even something as innocent as a cavity or filling can lead to a driving under the influence. If you suspect that dental conditions or dental work led to your DUI arrest, a defense lawyer can investigate your case to prepare a strong defense.

The breathalyzer works by shooting a beam of light through a chamber with the breath sample. Alcohol compounds absorb the light, so the less light that reaches the other side, the higher your BAC reading. Mouth alcohol can lead to excess alcohol compounds in the breath sample, thereby producing an inaccurate reading. Dental work or cavities in the mouth can trap alcohol.

The Intoxilyzer 5000 has many limitations and weaknesses, which is why you should not plead guilty just because you failed the breathalyzer test. At Head, Thomas, Webb and Willis, we have helped many people who tested over the legal limit successfully fight their Georgia DUI charges. In fact, we have our own Intoxilyzer 5000 that can be used to perform experiments when developing your defense strategy.

Our law firm has access to some of the top forensic experts and toxicologists in the state. These specialists can perform their own analysis of your breathalyzer test to find evidence that can be used on your behalf. If they find that these results were flawed, we may file a motion to have them suppressed.

Don’t let a cavity or filling lead to a DUI conviction. Contact our law firm and tell us about your dental work so we can conduct a thorough investigation of your case. No matter where you live in Georgia, our attorneys can represent you in your drunk-driving case.
