Tests utility

  • Advantages of test

What is the BPA microbiological test for?

  • During the diagnostic stage it helps identify and quantify the main pathogens responsible for periodontal disease and peri-implantitis;
  • When performed during and at the end of the periodontal treatment, it allows for monitoring the objective effectiveness of the therapeutic intervention and the maintenance protocol;
  • It is useful for improving the compliance of the patient who, due to being well informed about his/her own microbiological profile, takes part in the therapeutic plan with greater awareness.

What is GPS test for assessing the risk of periodontitis for?

  • It carries out a screening in young, healthy patients in order to assess their susceptibility to develop periodontal disease, making it possible to establish appropriate protocols for personalised prevention;
  • It optimises the therapeutic plan in patients suffering from periodontitis thanks to the integration of clinical information and the results of the BPA microbiological test;
  • It assesses the risk of developing peri-implantitis and/or unsuccessful implants in subjects who undergo prosthetic-implant rehabilitation.

Why the assessment test of MMP-8 enzyme activity?

  • It allows early detection of periodontal/pri-implant disease letting the specialist to act quickly.
  • It allows detection before the onset of clinical evidences, the risk for patient to develop a wide periodontal or peri-impkant tissue damage.
  • It allows the specialist to monitor the effectiveness of periodontal treatment plan applied to the patient.
  • The evaluation of the enzymatic activity of MMP-8 before implant surgery reduces the risk of loss of the implant.

PerioSafe Pro & ImplantSafe rapid test: safe, fast and reliable

  • Detects not yet visible degeneration of periodontal or peri-implant tissue.
  • Easy to use.
  • Dental hygienist or dentist can perform quick tests PerioSafe Pro or ImplantSafe in just 10 minutes. The actual test needs 3 minutes. You need few more minutes for reading the test result.
  • Validated and reliable.
  • Can be performed by the dental hygienist.

ImplantSafe test is not recommended in cases of manifest peri-implantitis (bleeding, pus, X-ray evidence of bone loss). In these cases it is more appropriate to perform a the quantitative essay of AMMP-8 through a laboratory to monitor the outcome of treatment that is carried out. A possible following test can be qualitative analysis of bacteria to determine the most appropriate antibiotic therapy.
