Dr. Herrera will explain if you are a candidate for bacterial testing. Many of our patients who have had previous periodontal treatment benefit from this test. MyPerioPath is a labratory test that identifies and measures harmful bacteria in your mouth. Dr. Herrera will use this information for early detection of problems, to personalize treatment, and to determine the appropriate follow up. Bacteria detected by MyPerioPath can also help your healthcare provider identify additional risks to your overall health. With the results antibiotics are often given to be taken in conjunction with your deep cleaning appointments.
A simple oral saline rinse is all that is needed to collect a sample and all OralDNA Labs’ tests can be ordered from a single collection. Test results are delivered to Dr. Herrera within days of collection.*
It is a simple, non-invasive saliva test and collection is as easy as 1-2-3!
