Genetic Risk for Periodontal Disease, Your Perio Path, Oral Cancer Detection

At Uptown Dental Gig Harbor, we are always looking for ways to give you the most accurate up to date dental information. One way that we do this is by using OralDNA Labs’ clinical laboratory services which use accurate and tests to detect diseases during the earlier stages. OralDNA Labs tests are reliable, cost-effective, and allow us to detect and treat diseases before they become serious.

Testing with OralDNA® has numerous benefits such as:

  • Discovering underlying oral pathogens that can negatively impact your oral and overall health. These pathogens can increase the risks of a number of diseases and complications, such as gum disease, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and birth defects.
  • Finding out if you’re genetically predisposed to increased inflammation, which is linked to periodontal disease, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  • Helping us to more effectively treat and monitor periodontal disease.
  • Testing if you have a type of HPV that is linked to oral cancer.
