This is why you should get an oral DNA test now

According to Dr. Travis Lee at Ocean Breeze Dental Care, gum disease is completely preventable. Gum disease is an extremely common condition responsible for receding gums, oral infections and even tooth loss in over 64,700,000 Americans. With proper treatment and oral hygiene, an early stage of periodontal disease, known as gingivitis, usually can be cured. However, a more severe form of gum disease called periodontitis, can only be managed with proper treatment. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue surrounding the tooth and if left untreated, can destroy the bone that supports your teeth leading to tooth loss and other serious health complications.

At our General & Cosmetic Dental Practice in West Los Angeles, we are proud to offer Oral DNA Testing for the diagnosis of periodontal gum disease. With Oral DNA Testing, Dr. Lee and his knowledgeable & compassionate dental professionals identify the specific kind of bacteria causing your gum disease, allowing us to create a specific dental treatment plan to restore & maintain your healthy teeth & beautiful smile.

Oral DNA Testing represents the latest dental technology which allows Dr. Lee to take a saliva sample which is then sent to a specialized laboratory for testing. Once tested, we can determine the exact strain(s) of bacteria which are causing your periodontal disease.

A major benefit to Oral DNA Testing is early detection and treatment of periodontal gum disease. Oral DNA Testing allows the knowledgeable & helpful dental professionals at Ocean Breeze Dental to gum disease before any symptoms actually start to show, allowing us to cure the problem before it advances and becomes incurable.
