Saliva Testing In Plantation, FL

There is growing interest in the development of quick, chair-side tests that use saliva or other oral fluids for disease detection. This method of sampling oral fluids instead of blood or urine is appealing because it can detect a variety of biomarkers, including proteins, electrolytes, hormones, antibodies, and DNA/RNA.

Now, a simple oral DNA test can identify the exact type and amount of disease-causing bacteria in your mouth. If left untreated, these bacteria can lead to periodontal disease, tooth loss, and increase your chances of developing other systemic diseases like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, among others.

There are several benefits to utilizing oral fluid for disease diagnostics, such as:

Access made easy,

Noninvasive collection of samples,

Patients are increasingly accepting it,

Quick outcomes,

Decreased chances of spreading infectious diseases

This new test is for people with gingivitis or periodontal disease symptoms.

The symptoms to watch out for are bleeding gums, bad breath, red or inflamed gums, and loss of bone around your teeth. This test is also recommended before undergoing major dental procedures or certain surgeries like heart surgery or joint replacements. To perform the gentle oral rinse procedure, simply swish a small amount of sterile saline in your mouth for about 30 seconds. The sample will then be sent to OralDNA Labs (www.OralDNA.com) for processing.

Advanced treatment planning is available.

The lab report we receive will identify the bacteria linked to your gum infection, enabling us to create a more potent and efficient treatment plan. With this advanced technology, My Dentist For Life Of Plantation can now address the root cause of the infection rather than just the symptoms. Consequently, our aim is to minimize your overall bacterial risk for disease advancement. Treating periodontal disease early and with targeted methods can prevent irreversible damage.

Enhanced care

We not only offer a bacterial DNA test, but also a genetic susceptibility test to determine if your genetic makeup increases your risk for gum tissue infections. This test will help us optimize our therapy and care program. It is recommended to have a Disease Susceptibility Gene Test conducted as prevention is better than cure. This test can assess the condition of your respiratory, cardio-cerebral vascular, digestive, urinary/blood/endocrine systems, as well as male and female related diseases. If you or a loved one needs either of these tests, please call for more information. Our mission is to provide you with the most advanced oral-systemic healthcare available.
