Our mouths are filled with numerous types of bacteria, but at least seven types of oral bacteria have been found to cause periodontal disease if not properly cleansed from the mouth each day. Unfortunately, due to poor dental hygiene or genetic susceptibility, millions of Americans end up developing some form of gum disease, which has been linked to other systemic diseases.
Whether you have perfect dental hygiene or severe periodontal disease, it is possible to protect your teeth and reduce your risk for developing other systemic diseases with an Oral Bacteria DNA Test at Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry.
What is an Oral Bacteria DNA Test?
Oral Bacteria DNA testing is an exciting new diagnostic tool used to test a patient's saliva and plaque to determine the specific types of bacteria present in their mouth as well as their genetic susceptibility to certain kinds of tooth decay and gum disease.
When combating disease-causing oral bacteria, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. For example, gingivitis, which is a mild form of gum disease, can be effectively treated with daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular cleanings. However, more severe forms of gum disease, such as periodontitis can only be managed with improved oral hygiene and prescription antibiotics.
By performing an Oral Bacteria DNA test, Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can create an individualized protocol designed to address a patient's unique needs, quickly and effectively.
How is an Oral DNA Test Performed?
The Oral Bacteria DNA procedure is very simple. At Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we take a sample of a patient's saliva and plaque and use DNA-PCR testing to create a bacteria profile report, which is provided by an independent DNA test lab. With that information we create a customized plan to battle the harmful bacteria known to cause periodontal infections.
