ORAL DNA TESTING
"The Doctors" recently did a segment on Oral DNA testing on their "Silent Symptoms You Can't Ignore" episode.
As we continue to learn more about the severity of periodontal infections and how closely linked they are to your overall health, having detailed information about your genetic susceptibility (MyPerioID®) and the bacteria that are present in our mouth (MyPerioPath®) will be critical in determining your oral and overall general health.
This test indentifies and measures certain bacteria in your mouth that cause gingivitis (early stage gum disease) and periodontal disease (mature gum disease).
This test determines if you are more likely to develop more serious gum tissue infections, such as inflammatory periodontal disease.
Introducing OraRisk® HPV:
This test determines if you are at increased risk for HPV-related oral and throat cancers.
These new, quick, and non-invasive tests deliver information that will enable your dental professional to better determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
