EFFECTIVELY PREVENT PERIODONTITIS

Periodontitis Sensor

The Periodontitis Sensor determines the individual risk of developing periodontitis and helps to prevent it effectively.

Periodontal disease is widespread

Periodontal disease is the most common oral disease, along with tooth decay. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of all adults between the ages of 35 and 44 are affected. Many patients even suffer from this severe form of gum disease.

Periodontitis is caused by bacteria that penetrate the gums and cause inflammation. Over time, a weakened immune system, for example, can cause the bacteria to attack the jawbone and ultimately even cause the teeth to fall out.

Causes of periodontitis

Periodontal disease is brought on by various factors. Oral hygiene plays an important role. If oral hygiene is inadequate, the probability of inflammation of the gums and the associated consequences increases considerably.

However, certain genetic defects can lead to an overreaction of the immune system, making severe periodontal disease possible in the first place. Here an appropriate genetic test can provide clarity and help to assess individual risks.

How our Periodontitis Sensor works

As part of our Periodontitis Sensor, our laboratory analyses the five genes that play a role in the development of periodontitis. In addition, we are investigating four genetic variants that are responsible for whether a titanium dental implant can be considered a permanent solution.

In this way, it is possible to take necessary preventive measures at an early stage and to select the right treatment method for an existing periodontal disease.

The results of our analysis are summarized in a clearly structured written report, which also contains concrete recommendations for action.

Thus, our Periodontitis Sensor can make an important contribution to dental health and effectively support patients in prophylaxis.

The Periodontitis Sensor at a glance:

  • Investigation of the five genes relevant for periodontitis
  • Determination of the individual risk for periodontosis
  • Estimation of the probability of loss of a titanium implant
  • Reliable testing by our laboratory
  • Written report with the results of the investigation
  • Recommendations for effective prevention based on the results

After a successful analysis, we summarize the individual results in a detailed result report – similar to the one shown in this demo.
