Dr. Prabha Raju uses ral DNA testing in Burton, Michigan, for the detection and diagnosis of oral cancer and other abnormal growths. Although DNA testing is most prominently used for periodontal treatments, it can be used by our dentist to better understand your oral health with regards to oral cancer. You are invited to plan your visit to Tender Dental Care by calling 810-715-3368 , so we can determine whether oral DNA testing can benefit you.
With our oral DNA testing services, we can determine both the type of bacteria in your mouth and the amount of bacterium there is. Depending on what we find, we can predict your susceptibility to oral health issues, such as periodontal disease, tooth decay and more. Our dentist and team can then cater your oral health care to best fit your needs and prevent damage to your teeth, gums, and oral health.
Oral DNA testing is painless and very quick to do. You will simply be given an oral rinse, which you will be asked to swish around in your mouth for about 30 seconds. Then, you will spit that into a container, so it can be sent to a lab for analysis and testing. We will soon meet with you again to go over the results.
