DNA Testing at 24th Street Dental Biltmore
OralDNA Labs® is a specialized diagnostics company that aims to offer accurate, conclusive, and affordable clinical tests. These tests assist oral health professionals in identifying and predicting disease at an earlier stage, making it easier to treat.
24th Street Dental Biltmore is currently offering molecular tests which offer additional insights into a patient’s overall well-being and periodontal disease. This valuable information can be used to create personalized treatment plans for periodontal disease therapy. Dr. Donnelly is excited to be one of only a few dental practices in the Phoenix area to incorporate diagnostic tests, thus improving the quality of care provided.
This revolutionary saliva DNA test is a significant breakthrough in addressing periodontal disease. Saliva contains the same DNA markers found in our entire body, and we now understand that specific genetic markers and periodontal pathogens present in saliva can indicate a higher likelihood of developing periodontal disease and related conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and even cancer. By quickly collecting a saliva sample, we can enhance the accuracy of diagnosis, tailor treatment plans for each patient, and screen for disease risk factors to identify and treat them at an early stage.
