What is Oral Vital Testing?

Oral vital testing is essentially an in-depth series of cultured swab tests. Biofilm samples are collected from all spaces in the mouth: the teeth, gums, throat, and all surfaces of the tongue are swiped and compartmentalized for culture. Once collected and cultured, our system uses the advanced technology to identify the bacteria species and quantity per sample.

Treat Specialized Ailments

When patients are experiencing recurring infection or persistent gum irritation, they may be suffering from an oral infection. Often, these types of ailments require targeted antibiotics to be completely eradicated. Oral vital testing can identify the specific strain of bacteria, and thus inform doctors how best to treat it. Some bacteria won’t respond to common antibiotics. It’s important to choose the correct antibiotic the first time in order to stall the growing rate of antibiotic resistance.

Symptoms of Oral Infection

Oral infection is a serious ailment that requires specialized care. Further, symptoms of oral infection can mimic other diseases, such as strep throat. Choose a dentist that offers oral vital testing to ensure your oral health can be adequately maintained.

Patients suffering from the following symptoms would benefit greatly from an oral vital test:

  • Halitosis
  • Recurrent Infection
  • Gum Irritation
  • Fever
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes
  • Jaw Pain

If you or a loved one are experiencing these symptoms, call and make an appointment with us immediately. Untreated oral infection can evolve into sepsis if left untreated.
