Your Oral Health Affects Your
Overall Health

American Dental Clinic uses clinical laboratory services from OralDNA Labs® to ensure we are giving our patients the best oral health information possible. OralDNA Labs® is a specialty diagnostics company designed to provide reliable, definitive and cost effective clinical tests that guide oral health professionals in detecting and prognosing disease at an earlier, more treatable stage.

Consequences of Oral Bacteria and Gum Disease
Go Far Beyond the Mouth

What Is Saliva DNA Testing?

Biomarkers present in saliva help to verify the diagnosis of and susceptibility to periodontal disease as well as other conditions. OralDNA Labs provides a litany of tests that identify certain microorganisms and inflammatory factors implicated in periodontitis, viral infections and candidiasis through their unique DNA sequences.

Saliva is collected by the dental provider, who marks the desired tests to be run and mailed to OralDNA Labs, which processes the salivary samples and reports the results via online portal to the dentist.

Why Test With OralDNA®

  • Find hidden oral pathogens that threaten your oral and systemic health. Common pathogens directly cause gum disease and may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and birth complications.
  • Learn if you were born with gene markers associated with increased inflammation, a critical factor in the severity of periodontitis, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Help your provider select the most effective treatment if you already have periodontal disease, and then measure treatment results with a follow-up test.
  • Learn if you have HPV high-risk types associated with oral cancer

Are you at risk?
Test, Don’t Guess!

Gum disease is an Inflammatory disease that is triggered by specific bacteria and your body’s response to those bacteria. Severe gum disease can result in tooth loss.

MyPerioPath® allows your healthcare provider to see these bacteria just like an x-ray helps your doctor see your bones and teeth.

OralDNA® Saliva Tests

  • Alert 2™

    Alert 2™ provides early warning of oral pathogens and establishes inherited genetic risk. Providers are then able to personalize therapy and treatment as well as identify potential related systemic health risks.

  • MyPerioPath®

    MyPerioPath® is our most widely used test for the detection of oral pathogens that cause gum disease and threaten oral & systemic health. MyPerioPath® provides early warning of oral pathogens to enable the personalization of periodontal treatment.

  • The MyPerioID® IL-6

    The MyPerioID® IL-6 test identifies individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease. This information helps clinicians to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response.
