The Consequences of Oral Bacteria and Gum Disease Go Far Beyond the Mouth.
We offer testing for the profile of oral bacteria that cause periodontal disease. These bacteria, especially at high levels, and in combination with an individual’s genetic inflammatory response, result in bad breath, painful, bleeding gums, loss of bone and eventually tooth loss. Additionally, the consequences of these same bacteria, present for years and decades, add significantly to the risk of wide range of life threatening diseases beyond the mouth. Below are some of those diseases and the measurable risk of those diseases becoming serious if these oral pathogens are not treated.
- Cardiovascular disease
- Metabolic health and Diabetes
- Health During Pregnancy
- Development of Cancer and Risk of Progression
- Joint and Musculoskeletal Health
- Dementia and Brain Health
