Using a simple chairside oral rinse, OralDNA® Labs can safely and non-invasively collect saliva for testing in our lab to determine your risk of developing many different diseases. Within the last decade alone, scientists have found an even stronger connection between oral health and conditions throughout the whole body.
Tests available through OralDNA® Labs include:
Alert 2™ Helps to create a personalized treatment plan by providing a specific bacterial profile in combination with inherited genetic risk. Alert 2™ combines the most widely used test for oral pathogens that cause gum disease with inherited genetic risk to create a personalized treatment plan. All from the same simple oral rinse collection.
MyPerioPath® This test identifies and measures 11 specific bacteria in your mouth that cause gingivitis (early stage gum disease) and periodontal disease (late stage gum disease).
OraRisk® Caries a simple screening test that allows you to identify your bacterial risk for dental caries! This test can help determine your risk of developing caries before they develop and cause permanent damage to your teeth.
MyPerioID® determines whether you are more likely to develop more severe gum tissue infections, such as periodontal disease.
OraRisk® HPV complete Genotyping detects 51 HPV types that may be present in the oral cavity to determine if you are at increased risk for HPV-related oral and throat cancers.
OraRisk® HPV 16/18/HR detects 14 high-risk HPV types that may be present in the oral cavity to determine if you are at increased risk for HPV-related oral and throat cancers.
OraRisk® HSV assists in accurately identifying oral blisters, ulcers and other forms of painful oral and throat lesions caused by herpes simplex virus types 1 & 2.
OraRisk® Candida identifies all common species of the yeast, Candida; which is known to cause oral thrush in patients with both healthy and compromised immune systems.
OraRisk® CT/NG tests for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea of the mouth; which is infectious and transmissible through intimate contact. If you test positive, you are likely at risk for other STDs including HPV and HSV.
Celsus One™ This test evaluates 8 genes associated with inflammation, a critical factor in periodontal, diabetes, cardiovascular and rheumatoid disease severity.
DNA DrugMap™ profile aids in personalizing prescription medications and dosing decisions based on your metabolism.
As scientists continue to learn more about the connection between periodontal disease and overall body wellness, access to tests like these can give you valuable information about your risk of developing certain diseases.
