Early detection can mean a better response to treatment.
The DNA ConneXions® Propensity Test identifies 19 of the most common bacterial species involved in chronic conditions. This test not only identifies species involved in periodontal diseases, but also those microbes which have been implicated in the progression of a variety of chronic, systemic conditions.
These disorders include various cancers; such as colorectal, pancreatic, prostate, and breast cancer, and other diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cognitive disorders, respiratory issues, and complications relating to pregnancy.
Sampling Method: Super Floss
Knowledge is Power
DNA ConneXions utilizes the molecular technique of PCR to identify opportunistic and pathogenic microbial DNA in oral samples. Periodontal diseases are silent and chronic inflammatory infections of the oral cavity. These infections can be symptomatic or asymptomatic and can affect the structures around the teeth, including the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone structures.
The bacterial species involved in periodontal diseases are often detected in conjunction with one another within the periodontal pockets. These bacterial species work synergistically to destroy periodontal tissue. These microbes may ultimately spread to a systemic level, that can contribute to non-oral diseases throughout the body.
More About Microbes
The microbes selected for the DNA ConneXions Propensity Test include those pathogens which research shows are possible biological indicators involved in the progression of non-oral diseases.
