Test for detecting periodontal bacteria
The test assess the bacterial load in periodontal pocket and quantitatively examines the bacterial species most suited to discriminate between healthy subjects and patients with periodontitis. The result assess the percentage of different species providing an infectious profile useful to improve the diagnosis and plan a treatment targeted with a specific therapy to fight the ongoing infection.
The bacterial test repeated in successive phases constitutes a valid tool to verify the effectiveness of the treatment and determine the stability of results.
The tests are performed by taking the crevicular fluid (gum) colonized by bacteria and epithelial cells.
Specimen collection is quick for the operator and absolutely painless for the patient.
The collection is effected by paper cones which are subsequently placed in a test tube and shipped for analysis. The response is sent via e-mail to the dentist.
