Oravital Oral Microbiological Testing Program
Periodontal disease is a common condition that may lead to tooth loss and can compromise your systemic health.
offer a saliva test to find out which bacteria, yeasts, and fungi are contributing to your periodontal disease. My dental hygiene office has been certified to dispense the Oravital® System; a powerful diagnostic and treatment protocol for oral infections including gingivitis (sensitive or bleeding gums), periodontitis (gum disease), and halitosis (chronic bad breath).
I obtain a saliva sample of your teeth, tongue, and five deepest gum pockets from your mouth. Your sample is sent to and processed by a specialized laboratory. The lab analyzes your samples and sends a detailed report to me that identifies the type and amount of pathogens found in your mouth.
I will review your results with you, and collaboratively we will make decisions on the best course of action to treat your periodontal disease.
