When our dentist needs to diagnose a dental problem, he may perform an Oral DNA® testing. This test will tell us exactly what type of bacteria are present in your mouth, and allow Dr. Jeffrey Lowe to predict, diagnose, and treat any problems in your mouth. Please call us at 785-261-0221 to make your appointment at Lifetime Dental Care and learn more about Oral DNA testing in Hays, Kansas.
Using Oral DNA® testing, our dentist can predict your susceptibility to gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental problems, and can even help us provide a treatment before harmful bacteria can cause a problem.
The procedure for Oral DNA testing is simple. We provide a gentle rinsing procedure, in which you will swish a small amount of a sterile solution in your mouth for about 30 seconds. This sample will then be sent back to the Oral DNA labs for testing. The lab will identify the type of bacteria found in your mouth, and the quantities in which they exist. This report will allow our dentist to develop a more effective treatment plan to meet your oral wellness needs.
