Make Confident Treatment Decisions Through Clinical Evidence

Accurate Diagnosis Leads to Effective Care

Periodontal diseases, which include gingivitis, periodontitis, peri-implant mucositis, and peri-implantitis, are chronic inflammatory diseases caused by pathogenic imbalances in the oral microbiome, a condition known as dysbiosis.

Visual examination cannot detect the causative agents at any point in the disease process. Clinical signs of disease appear long after the disease process has begun. Testing for the specific causative agents enables early intervention, tailored treatment, and quantitative goals for success.


Testing is crucial for risk assessment and diagnosis as it offers an unbiased, objective perspective. Detecting causative agents of the disease brings clarity for both patients and clinicians regarding disease risk or cause, as well as the necessity for intervention or treatment.



Analyzing saliva for the HR5 species enhances your understanding of how to treat and manage patients effectively. Personalizing treatment protocols based on causation (HR5 test results), instills confidence in diagnosis and treatment decisions.

Effective Case Management

Continued objective monitoring of the HR5 species is vital for achieving and maintaining treatment endpoint. Salivary testing with HR5 equips clinicians with better predictive abilities, potentially preventing disease progression or recurrence.
