Oral DNA, Campbell CA
Ueno Center Dental Specialists
Treat the cause, not the symptoms.
Any good holistic health provider will do just that and that’s why we employ the use of Oral DNA Labs. They provide invaluable information through salivary testing to let us know how best to treat the cause of your periodontal condition. If you’ve been diagnosed with periodontal disease and have not been able to gain control of the disease, you might be a candidate for Oral DNA. Measure, Treat, Monitor. Oral DNA Labs helps medical and dental professionals in all healthcare settings and their patients use salivary diagnostics to obtain precise evidence about periodontal disease and oral HPV, allowing more accurate diagnosis and, in the case of periodontal disease more effective treatment.
Periodontal Disease is caused by a wide variety of oral bacteria which can vary from patient to patient. If left untreated, the presence of this bacteria can lead to the destruction of the bone which surrounds our teeth, ultimately resulting in tooth loss. Studies have shown that the bacteria associated with untreated Periodontal Disease may also have an effect and increase a person’s risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and premature birth rates among pregnant women.
In order to determine exactly which types of bacteria are causing a patient’s specific periodontal issues, we may recommend a simple Oral DNA test to assist them in diagnosing and treating their disease. A gentle oral rinse with sterile saline for 30 seconds is all that is needed to complete this evaluation.
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 and the bacteria that are present in our mouth will be critical in determining your oral care and overall general health.
