What is HR5 High-Risk Pathogen Saliva Testing?
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could learn what oral and overall health concerns you may experience in your lifetime? We can now assist you with this! As you most likely know, we care about the state of our patients’ oral health as well as their overall health. We can now use your saliva to test to see if your mouth is carrying any of the five most harmful strains of bacteria that could be putting you at risk for the following medical conditions:
- Heart Disease
- Gum Disease
- Liver Disease
- Pregnancy Complications
How Testing Benefits You
After the testing results come in, we will sit down with you to determine if you are at risk. If a problem has been detected, we will come up with treatment options to manage any harmful bacteria in your mouth. Ideally, we are looking to mitigate the harmful bacteria in your mouth so it cannot continue to grow and fester, leading to further complications with your oral and overall health.
