Oral DNA

As you may be aware, the past 10 years have provided much insight into what has come to be called... "The Oral / Systemic Connection". There does appear to be a link to chronic inflammatory periodontal infections and systemic diseases such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Some forms of cancer and other diseases

 

The National Institute of Health (NIH) and other research facilities are aggressively pursuing this link as well. For More information regarding the Oral/Systemic Connection, visit the following links online:

 

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® PST®) and the bacteria that are present in our mouth (MyPerioPath®) will be critical in determining your oral and overall general health.

 

Introducing MyPerioPath®:

This test identifies and measures certain bacteria in your mouth that cause gingivitis (early stage gum disease) and periodontal disease (mature gum disease).

 

Introducing MyPerioID® PST®:

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.
