Drs. Dean and Tara Kois are pleased to offer one of the most recent advances in dentistry, the salivary diagnostic screening. By analyzing a patients saliva for oral health problems, Drs. Dean and Tara are able to catch oral infections before they can take hold.
Through this new salivary diagnostic screening the Drs. can predict the risks of future cavities by looking at the acids and bacteria in a patients saliva. Drs. Dean and Tara can also test for the beginnings of periodontal disease before any symptoms have been seen. Periodontal disease has been linked to other systematic problems such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Drs. Dean and Tara Kois believe in integrating these new salivary diagnostics methods into routine exams. They are an important aid in making essential health-related decisions for their patients. preventative strategies are always more conservative than reparative treatment modalities.
