Periodontitis DNA test

The pathophysiology of adult periodontitis is linked to the action of bacteria organized in bacterial plaque. It starts with a gingival inflammation (gingivitis) without affecting the alveolar bone; inflammatory process progresses involving the supporting tissue and causing tooth loss.

Periodontitis is a disease that may occur with an initial gingivitis, and then continue with gingival recession and bone loss until, if not treated, leaving the tooth without bone support.

Important health problems are manifested by the mouth, which is the gateway for many bacteria and diseases. Periodontitis is associated with cardiovascular disorders, arthritis, diabetes, lung problems, premature birth and osteoporosis, among others, and cause bad breath.

According to the National Health Survey (Spain 2010) about 8 in 10 people over age 35 suffer from some type of periodontal disease. Smoking is a major risk factor.

Some people have severe periodontal inflammation and significant degradation mandibular despite good oral hygiene. One of the possible causes of these inflammations is the excessive production of interleukin-1 (IL-1) that favors the propagation of anaerobic bacteria as well as an excessive activation of osteoclasts, leading to a rapid and pathological mandibular degradation.

DENTYgenes profile is indicated to evaluate periodontitis risk and/or before a dental implantation in patients at risk.

In the appearance and development of this disease is especially important genetic predisposition of the patient.

DENTYgenes provides a personal risk index, associated with periodontitis and periimplantitis, depending on the genetic variants detected. It allows taking the most appropriate preventive measures for each person.
