DNA/Bacterial Identification

MyPerioPath® - Determines the cause of periodontal infections

We use MyPerioPath® to identify the type and amount of specific oral bacteria that are known to cause periodontal disease. This new, quick, and non-invasive salivary test delivers information that will enable Dr. Ortiz-Ramsey to better determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. DNA is extracted from your saliva sample and tested for 13 bacteria associated with periodontal disease.

Patients that will benefit from this test:

  • Patients presenting with signs and symptoms of a periodontal infection
  • Patients with pockets of 4mm or greater with clinical signs of a periodontal infection
  • Patients presenting chronic periodontal disease who is not responding positively to their current treatment
  • Patients with Type I or Type II diabetes
  • Patients with a history of Cardiovascular disease
  • Patients who use tobacco products
  • Patients that will undergo surgical procedures or radiation treatment
  • Can be used as a "Baseline" for any patient that may be at increased risk for periodontal infections
  • Patients who test positive for genetic susceptibility with the MyPerioID® PST® test
  • Women of child bearing age
