Genetics and microbiology in dentistry
Predisposition to certain oral cavity diseases, such as caries and periodontitis, has classically been associated with dysbiosis of the microbial flora. However, in the current concept of infectogenomics of the mouth, genetic factors of the individual are also considered relevant.
Genetic and microbiological studies make it possible to bring the principles of preventive and personalised medicine to the dental practice.
These genetic factors (usually SNPs, single nucleotide polymorphisms) may influence the development of these diseases. In particular on the formation and composition of microbial biofilms, as well as on the immune response to these microorganisms.
Which tests do we offer to dentists?
At Genosalut we offer different genetic and microbiological tests for the detection of genetic variants and bacteria associated with an increased risk of various conditions of the oral cavity.
Study of the bacteria and genetic variants that influence the appearance and evolution of periodontitis.
Knowing and successfully managing these factors can determine the success of periodontal treatment and its prognosis, especially in patients with a tendency to develop the most severe forms of this pathology.
Study of the bacteria and genetic variants that influence the appearance and evolution of peri-implantitis.
Knowledge of both the causative bacterial species and genetic predisposition will allow the dentist to: perfect the diagnosis, optimise treatment, determine the frequency of check-ups and improve the quality of his or her service.
Study of the bacteria and genetic variants that influence the appearance and evolution of caries.
This knowledge will help the dentist to improve the service in terms of preventive, diagnostic and treatment measures, especially in patients with a high predisposition to caries.
Our value proposal
What are the benefits of genetic and microbiological studies?
Genetic and microbiological studies for dentists offer solutions and support in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases such as periodontitis, peri-implantitis or caries.
