Quantitative Test of Periodontopathic Bacterias

We have quantitative test of periodontopathic bacteria. The test result is effective in planning treatment plans for dentists or Internal Medicine specialists who wish to identify the level of oral inflammation caused by various bacteria. We perform real-time PCR to quantify 16SrRNA gene.

Quantitative Test of Periodontopathic Bacteria

Characteristics

  • Precise and accurate detection of periodontopathic bacteria
  • Quick reports return by eliminating the step of cultivation

A Variety of Specimen Collection Method

We have multi specimen collection kits for the variety of needs.

Specimen Characteristics
Mouthwash Collect mouthwash sample
Mouthwash is suitable for patients who is lack of salivary secretion
This specimen reflects the intraoral state
Saliva Collect saliva sample by chewing gum
This specimen reflects the intraoral state
Paper Point Absorb gingival crevicular fluid by using a paper point
This specimen is suitable for measuring the bacterial count of affected part
  • *It is recommended to choose mouthwash or saliva if you prefer to test the intraoral state.
  • *It is recommended to choose paper point if you prefer to measure the bacterial count of affected part.
  • *A gum is not included in the saliva sampling kit.
  • *Paper point is not included in the paper point sampling kit.

About the Periodontal Disease

Bacterial infection leads to periodontal disease. We perform quantitative test for following five bacteria which are known as the major pathogenic bacteria.

Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg)

Collagen degradation observed in chronic periodontal disease results in part from the collagenase enzymes of this species.

Tannerella forsythia (Tf)

Tannerella forsythia produces tryptic enzyme.

Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa)

Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans produces leukotoxin which is protein toxin attacks white blood cells.

Treponema denticola (Td)

Treponema dentcola produces dentilisin which is a major extracellular protease.

Prevotella intermedia (Pi)

Prevotella intermedia has been associated with hormone-induced pregnancy gingivitis.
