Why Oral DNA Salivary Diagnostics?
- Find hidden oral pathogens that threaten your oral and systemic health. Common pathogens directly cause gum disease and may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, birth complications and more
- Learn if you were born with gene markers associated with increased inflammation, a critical factor in the severity of periodontal, diabetes and cardiovascular disease
- Help the BDD Team select the most effective treatment if you already have periodontal disease, and then measure results with a follow-up test
- Learn if you have HPV (high-risk types) associated with oral cancer
The Doctors did a segment on OralDNA testing on their “Silent Symptoms You Can’t Ignore” episode. Watch this very informative, short 3.5 minute video at their website.
As you may be aware, the past 10 years have provided much insight into what has come to be called “The Oral / Systemic Connection”. Scientific research suggests a link between chronic inflammatory periodontal infections and systemic diseases such as: heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some forms of cancer and other diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. The National Institute of Health (NIH) and other research facilities are aggressively pursuing this link as well.
