Oral DNA® testing allows us to know exactly what kinds of bacteria are present in the mouths of our patients. This information allows us to predict how susceptible a patient may be to certain kinds of periodontal disease and tooth decay. It also allows us to treat the mouth before certain types of bacteria are able to cause serious, permanent damage.
