Genetic Susceptibility Testing

MyPerioID® PST® - Determines who is at increased risk for severe periodontal infections

We use MyPerioID® PST® to identify individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease and enables Dr. Ortiz-Ramsey to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response. The PST test assesses one of several risk factors that should be included in an overall evaluation of periodontal disease. Specific bacteria are associated with the initiation of the disease, and additional risk factors including genetic susceptibility, smoking, diabetes, and oral hygiene have an amplifying effect on periodontal disease progression. 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 2 genetic markers (two Interleukin-1 polymorphisms) associated with periodontal disease.

Patients that will benefit from this test:

  • Patients with a family history of periodontal disease
  • Patients with compromised immune systems
  • Patients that have received therapy but continue with disease activity
  • Patients that will receive implants and have lost teeth to periodontal disease
  • Adolescent patients
