Periodontal Bacteria DNA Testing
Collecting a sample is easily administered chairside, taking about one minute to complete:
- Patient swishes and gargles a saline solution for 30 seconds
- Patient expectorates into funneled collection tube
- Funnel is removed and cap is secured to top of collection tube
- Sample is labeled with patient name and date of birth
A perio path report is then sent to our office with the bacteria culture results.

Once reviewed Dr Trail will determine which antibiotic to prescribe, to selectively destroy the aggressive bacteria leaving the healthy bacteria behind.
