Our diagnostic
periodontal tests

The Bio-molecular Diagnostic laboratory offers to the dentist/hygienist different types of tests in order to support the specialist during the phases of prevention, diagnosis, therapy and follow-up of important oral pathologies such as periodontitis and caries.

BPA

Microbiological Test (BPA)

Microbiological test that offers a qualitative and quantitative result related to the main pathogens associated to the onset and progression of periodontitis.

CRA

Caries Test (CRA)

Allows assessment of individual risk associated with the formation of caries and allows the dentist/hygienist to set up a personalized prevention program.

ANT

Antibiogram (ANT)

Equips the dentist with indications regarding the most effective antimicrobial active principle to be used for implementing a successful periodontal therapy.

MMP8

Evaluation Test for Enzimatic Activity (MMP8)

Quantitative test to detect aMMP-8 levels in saliva or in crevicular/sulcular fluid. aMMP-8 is an early marker of tissue damage in the oral cavity that allows the clinician a early treatment in order to avoid the onset of periodontal and peri-implant damages.

PerioSafe-ImplantSafe

Diagnostic tests for prevention of periodontitis and Peri-implantitis (aMMP-8)

aMMP-8 (active matrix metalloproteinase) is an early risk marker for the hidden destruction of gingival, periodontal, and/or peri-implant soft and hard tissue.

Scientific Research

The laboratories of Bio-molecular Diagnostic research employ a qualified scientific team which has many years' experience in microbiology, molecular and cellular biology. Our researchers work daily to offer the most cutting-edge and constantly evolving services on the basis of the results of scientific research and literature data.

Periodontitis
What is periodontitis and how does it develop?

Commonly known as 'pyorrhea' and technically defined as 'loss of periodontal attachment'. Sixty percent of the adults in Italy are suffering from various degrees of periodontitis, 10% to 14% of which in a severe and at an advanced stage. The increase in the incidence is dramatic for people ranging from 35 to 44.

Diagnostic tests
The advantages of our diagnostic tests

During the diagnostic phase they allow to identify and to quantify the main pathogens responsible for periodontitis and periimplantitis. Furthermore, they evaluate both the risk of developing periimplantitis and/or the failure of implanting into patients undergoing an implant prosthetic rehabilitation.

The effectiveness of the tests

The laboratories of Bio molecular Diagnostic research are born with the object of providing a highly specific analysis service in dentistry. Pioneers of setting up an evaluation test for periodontal risk, unique in the world that allows the specialist to personalize the course of treatment, depending on the genetic traits concerning the main molecules involved in regulating the adjustment of the inflammatory process and the bone metabolism.
