Parodontitis is the main cause of teeth-lost in adults. The mucous membranes of healthy human cavity of the mouth are colonized with billions of microorganisms. The different species (up to 300) secrete growth factors and inhibitors thereby regulating their own number. This ecological system of microorganisms is in permanent steady state. Beside the physiological bacteria also pathogen organisms will grow up in the mouth (more precise in the gingival pocket). An excessive amplification of these pathogens disturbs the physiological ballance and favours development of parodontitis (making a therapy with antibiotics necessary).
Once started, parodontitis leads in it`s further course to slow degradation of the parodontium. This stage begins mostly at the age of 30-35 years resulting in first teeth losts at the age of 40 years (if no treatment occurs).
The test kit “MutaGEL® Parodontits“ allows detection of the five major pathogens (Porphyromonas gingivalis, Tannerella forsythensis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans and Prevotella intermedia) leading to chronic parodontitis, agressive juvenile parodontitis and necrotic ulcerative gingivitis. Matrix for this analysis is bacteria DNA isolated from gingival pocket.
