Oral Health Diagnostics
At our office, we use clinical laboratory services from OralDNA Labs to ensure we are giving our patients the best oral health information possible. OralDNA Labs is a specialty diagnostics company designed to provide reliable, definitive and cost-effective clinical tests that guide oral health professionals in detecting and prognosing disease at an earlier, more treatable stage.
Currently, Beaufort Family Dentistry offers three non-invasive salivary diagnostic tests, all of which are quickly and easily administered at chairside:
- Salivary DNA test that determines the cause of periodontal infections.
- Salivary DNA test that detects an increased risk of severe periodontal infections (genetic).
- Salivary test that determines increased risk for HPV-related oral cancers.
