How to prevent and cure Periodontal disease and peri-implantitis using Perio-Analyse ® Testing :
Periodontal bacteria Identity and associated risks
The origin of periodontal disease is the formation of bacterial biofilm with specific pathogenic bacteria. The pathogenic bacteria are also present in the saliva of patients. The colonization of the mouth by periodontal bacteria can take place from an early age but can also take place after dental implant installation (peri-implantitis) if the patient has not being properly treated against pathogenic bacteria or if is having poor oral hygiene.
- The non-existence in the oral cavity of a certain pathogenic bacteria strain will guarantee the absence of periodontal disease or peri-implantitis
- The presence of some pathogenic bacteria strains and fungus above a certain level will increase the risk of periodontal disease or peri-implantitis.
How to measure risk of caries and prevent disease using Cario-Analyse ® testing:
Caries disease is the consequence of prolonged presence of specific bacteria biofilm (plaque). Bacterial identities and quantities can be associated with caries risk measurements and oral preventive actions.
Dental caries have been an important public health issue worldwide. Evaluations about an individual’s risk of caries and state of carious lesions should be used before drafting a personalized treatment plan. Recent studies have successfully identified patients with a high or low risk of primary caries by using Classification and Regression Trees (CART) according to the number of specific cariogenic bacteria, as well as those at risk of secondary caries according to the number of particular bacteria and previous caries experience. The same study also provides informations assessing the time it takes to develop a new carious lesion for each high and low risk group. This information help planning a personalized regular preventive program with an appropriate interval according to the individual’s risk of caries. The origin of caries disease is the formation of bacterial biofilm with specific pathogenic bacteria on the teeth occlusal surface. The pathogenic bacteria are present in the saliva of patients before plaque formation. The colonization of the mouth by caries bacteria can take place from an early age but can also take place after dental prosthetic installation or orthodontic treatment for patients with poor oral hygiene and ill-suited diet.
