Why test your oral microbiome?

Well, the oral microbiome plays a crucial role in your overall oral health. Imbalances in microbial communities can contribute to various oral health conditions, such as gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. Dysbiosis in the oral microbiome can have both local effects (e.g., dental caries, periodontitis, gingivitis, oral cancers), as well as systemic effects (e.g., neurodegeneration, diabetes, cardiovascular disease). By identifying the specific microorganisms present in your mouth, our test can offer valuable insights to help you take proactive steps towards improving your oral health.

How do I take the oral microbiome test?

The process is quick and simple. Upon ordering the test, you will receive a collection kit containing:

  • Buccal swab home saliva test kit
  • Complete instructions and laboratory request form
  • Pre-paid express return post satchel

Follow the instructions to provide a saliva sample, and then send it back to the lab using the pre-paid bag.

What will I receive?

Once the analysis is complete, you will receive a detailed report that breaks down the results of your oral microbiome test. The report will highlight the presence and abundance of each microorganism, providing you with a clear understanding of your oral microbial profile. Our qualified microbiome expert will provide you with recommendations for dental health products, ingredients to avoid and use, helpful foods and helpful probiotics or prebiotics.
