If you are struggling with periodontal disease, it's crucial to gain insights into the underlying causes of your condition. Conventional diagnostic methods, such as traditional laboratory cultures, often fall short in identifying the specific bacteria or fungi responsible for your infection. MicroGenDX offers a cutting-edge solution by employing two advanced technologies to analyze your oral samples.
The first technology, known as "next-generation sequencing" (NGS), utilizes a comprehensive database consisting of over 50,000 known bacteria and fungi. This powerful tool accurately identifies all the microorganisms present in your sample, boasting an impressive 99% accuracy rate within 3-5 days.
Additionally, MicroGenDX incorporates qualitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), a rapid detection method that can promptly identify common microbial culprits associated with periodontal disease within a timeframe of just 24-48 hours.
If you experience discomfort while chewing, gum pain, persistent bad breath, loose teeth, or any other symptoms of periodontal disease, it may be the right time to consider a comprehensive oral test that utilizes the qPCR and NGS technologies offered by MicroGenDX. Obtain the answers you need to address your periodontal health effectively.
