There are several contributing factors and many pathogenic bacteria that can cause gum disease. Oral DNA Labs now offer a salivary screening tool we can use to accurately diagnose and treat the specific cause or causes of your disease. There are two tests we can do. Both are done in our office and are quick, non-invasive, and painless. The first, MyPerioPath, identifies which of eight commonly associated bacteria are causing your infection and how numerous they are; many times, more than one bacterial presence is to blame. The second test, MyPerioID, uses genetic markers to determine if you are more susceptible than most people to gum tissue infections.

Ask about Oral DNA tests if you have been diagnosed with periodontal (gum) disease or you have any of the following indicators:

  • Inflamed, red, or bleeding gum tissue
  • Bone loss evidenced by periodontal pockets or x-rays
  • Family history of periodontal disease
  • Smoking or history of smoking
  • Other conditions, such as diabetes, that increase your susceptibility
  • Certain medications, such as asthma inhalers or steroids
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Loose teeth

Every year we learn more about the connection between oral health and whole-body health and oral disease causing systemic disease. By knowing what bacteria are in your mouth and being aware of your proclivity towards disease, we can help you to be as healthy as you can be. To learn more, visit:www.oraldna.com.
