Oral DNA Testing
The ability to monitor health status, disease onset and progression, and treatment outcome through noninvasive means is a highly desirable goal. Oral fluid is a perfect medium for this purpose as there does appear to be a link between chronic inflammatory periodontal infections and systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some forms of cancer and other diseases.
Dr. Parsi in conjunction with OralDNA Labs, a leader in advancing wellness in dentistry through salivary diagnostics, offers the following quick, and non-invasive tests. These tests deliver information that will enable us to better determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
- MyPerioPath®: This test identifies and measures certain bacteria in your mouth that cause gingivitis (early stage gum disease) and periodontal disease (mature gum disease).
- MyPerioID® PST®: This test determines if you are more likely to develop more serious gum tissue infections, such as inflammatory periodontal disease.
- OraRisk® HPV: This test determines if you are at increased risk for HPV-related oral and throat cancers.
