My Perio Path Diagnostic testing

When MyPerioPath® salivary diagnostic test results arrive, we notify patients of the findings regarding levels of certain disease-causing bacteria in your mouth. Left untreated, these bacteria can cause a severe periodontal infection. The infection can cause the gum to pull away from the teeth, forming pockets in which bacteria can grow and cause further damage, leading to tooth loss.

With the knowledge of exactly what kinds of bacteria are causing a patient’s periodontal disease, we are able to treat infections more effectively in an effort to return the patient’s mouth to a state of health. Remember, your gums help support your teeth. Periodontal disease destroys the gum tissue and tooth-supporting structures. Periodontal disease does not go away on its own, and will only get worse if it is not treated properly.

Please call Rye Smiles for Life today at (703) 565-2503 if you have any concerns about whether your teeth, gums, and smile are as healthy as they can be. Contact us today with any questions!
