About Oral DNA Testing

At Yancho Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we use clinical laboratory services from OralDNA Labs to ensure we are giving our patients the best oral health information possible. OralDNA Labs is a specialty diagnostics company designed to provide reliable, definitive and cost effective clinical tests that guide oral health professionals like board-certified dentist Dr. Phillip Yancho in detecting and prognosing disease at an earlier, more treatable stage. Symptoms of gum disease:

  • Chronic halitosis (bad breath)
  • Sensitive gums
  • Red (not pink) gums
  • Swollen puffy gums
  • Receding gums
  • Deep gum pockets
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Bleeding after brushing or flossing

What to Expect

Dr. Yancho will personally evaluate the severity of each case to determine what care intervals are needed to provide the patient with optimal oral health. It is highly recommended that the patient carefully adhere to the care program created for them as ignoring it could lead to additional deterioration. A check up every three months is standard, but the frequency will be customized to meet each patient's needs. 

Treatment Aftercare

Adhering to the customized care plan may involve receiving more frequent treatments, but the additional cost of the maintenance is still far more cost effective and better for your health than allowing for the serious complications that can be created by advanced periodontal disease and the gum disease surgeries including grafts, gingivectomy, and flap procedures that could be required to manage advanced gum disease.

Cutting-Edge Prevention

Periodontal disease is perhaps the most prevalent chronic inflammatory disease in the U.S. population. American dentists are only diagnosing and treating 5% of it. No level of gum bleeding is acceptable. If every time you cut your finger and it wouldn't stop bleeding, you would go the physician right away. We need to start thinking of bleeding gums in the same way by using oral DNA testing.
