A little about our partners in healthcare that will be joining us:
Cardiorisk providing CIMT-
Measuring the thickness of the intima and media layers of the carotid artery wall (carotid intima-media thickness, or CIMT) is one way to assess the cardiovascular health of your patients. This non-invasive procedure gives you another tool in your toolbox to further solve the diagnostic puzzle and help you accurately assess disease presence, risk of events, and progression of the disease before your patient presents with acute symptoms. ***Call Carrie at 512-346-5196 or email Carrie@12oaksdental.com for a Reservation
BodySpec by DEXA scan-
A powerful tool that helps you get healthier. The scan gives a comprehensive, whole-body health snapshot. Providing a unique, fascinating, and unprecedented glimpse at what’s going on under your skin.
By empowering you to understand your body in a completely new way, our scans motivate you to be more committed, guide you in the right direction, and make you more successful on your health journey – wherever it leads. **Call Carrie at 512-346-5196 or email Carrie@12oaksdental.com for a Reservation
KBMO Diagnostics is the laboratory that we use to process the food inflammatory test or FIT Test, that we provide to our patients. The FIT Test is a patented, multi-pathway delayed food sensitivity test. The test uses patented technology that measures both IgG and Immune Complexes, the most common food-related pathways in the body. This enables the FIT test to be able to identify, food sensitivities, inflammation, and leaky gut from a single test.
Food Sensitivities affect more than 100 million people worldwide. They are very difficult to identify because the symptoms can be delayed up to 72 hours after eating.
FIT Tests will be available at a discounted rate of $150-$200(reg. $389-489).
Please let us know if you are interested in the FIT Test so that we can be sure to have a test available for you. They will be first come first serve.
Direct Diagnostic is the lab that processes the HR5 test. HR5 tests for the presence of 5 bad bacteria in the mouth. It is a super easy salivary test. By simply spitting into a small tube we can assess the types of bacteria that could be leading to a host of problems including periodontal disease and inflammation.
5 bacteria tested for:
Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans – Aa
Primary cause of rapid alveolar bone loss in both children and adults, severe periodontitis and dental implant failure. Research studies have shown this pathogen increases risk for Cardiovascular Disease, Ischemic Stroke, Brain Abscesses, & Heart Infections
Porphyromonas gingivalis – Pg
Primary cause of alveolar bone loss, periodontitis and implant failure. Research studies have shown this pathogen increases risk for Heart Attack, Ischemic Stroke, Type Two Diabetes, Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and other inflammatory diseases.
Treponema denticola – Td
Primary cause of periodontitis and implant failure (peri-implantitus). Recent studies have also demonstrated its association with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Tannerella forsythia – Tf
Primary cause of periodontitis and implant failure (peri-implantitus). It’s effect on other health issues is not as well known.
Fusobacterium nucleatum – Fn
Associated with periodontitis and implant failure. Among the systemic issues is that it has been associated with preterm birth, low birth weight babies, and fetal death. This pathogen tends to facilitate the movement of other oral pathogens into the circulatory system.
Please let us know if you are interested in the HR5 test so that we can be sure to have a test available for you. They will be first come first serve.
Other partners in healthcare-
There will be representatives from many of the companies we partner with available to answer questions and connect how they are helping to change how we can treat the whole body, not just fill cavities. Perio Protect, ProBiora, Stella Life, Myo Ingenuity(myofunctional therapy), and others would love to meet you!
We look forward to spend the the day celebrating how 12 Oaks Dental is transforming the perception of dentistry!
