YOUR SALIVA CAN MAKE YOU WELL
- Posted on: Aug 5 2012
Recently, my friend and colleague from the Kois Center Dr. Doug Thompson of Detroit,MI spoke to a group here in Atlanta. He shared some of the latest techniques in “periodontal medicine” which has been well documented in improving your health by eliminating the inflammation caused by gum disease. One of the key techniques testing your saliva for unhealthy bacteria and markers that tell us your susceptability to damaging effects of infections in your gums, which has been shown to often lead to diabetes, heart disease, and strokes.
For the last three years, we have been using “salivary diagnostics” from two leading edge companies–Oral DNA and OralBiotech to help minimize the risks of tooth decay and periodontal breakdown. The information we get is like they get on the TV show CSI. It is exremely accurate and the treatments are very effective. They are all scientifically document and very safe.
