MyPerioPath Salivary Diagnostic Test
MyPerioPath provides DNA-PCR assessment of periodontal disease bacteria via simple salivary testing.
OralDNA Labs' MyPerioPath is a simple, chairside salivary test that detects the presence and quantity of specific bacteria associated with periodontal disease. Based on DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing, the molecular test enables early and accurate1 diagnosis and provides the information needed to design treatment plans tailored specifically to each patient, thus ensuring more predictable outcomes.
