Oral DNA Testing Roseville

Periodontal disease

At whole dental wellness, we are committed to partnering with other professionals to help manage your overall health.

We believe that the lines between medicine and dentistry are continually getting more blurry. Periodontal disease illustrates this connection perfectly, as it is caused by a bacterial insult that shifts things out of balance, creating a site of chronic inflammation. Out of control inflammation appears to be common link in the growing list of chronic systemic diseases related to periodontal disease, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Adverse pregnancy outcomes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis

Purpose of saliva test

As healthcare providers, medical or dental, we all need to understand this connection so we can act quickly and appropriately to diagnose and treat the underlying inflammatory problem.

For this reason, in some cases, we may recommend a simple, swish and spit saliva test to determine what bacteria in your mouth are contributing to your periodontal disease, and perhaps other issues going on in your body. These saliva tests help us identify harmful bacteria that threaten your oral and whole body health so we can target our care, aiming to greatly reduce or eliminate these harmful bugs.
