Dr. James A. Miller offers Oral DNA testing!
Why Test with OralDNA®?
· 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 and birth complications
· 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 your dentist select the most effective treatment if you already have periodontal disease, and then measure results with a follow-up test
MyPerioPath® Testing From OralDNA Labs
The MyPerioPath® salivary diagnostic test identifies the type and concentration of specific perio-pathogenic bacteria that are known to cause periodontal disease. MyPerioPath® helps support the clinician with better risk assessment and personalized treatment options for more predictable outcomes.
MyPerioID® Testing From OralDNA Labs
The MyPerioID® IL-1 and MyPerioID® IL-6 tests identify individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease. With this information, clinicians are able to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response and can personalize therapy and treatment.
