The OroTox test investigates metabolic products of bacteria from infections, infected and dead, root-treated teeth. Bacteria in dead and root-filled teeth can cause not only infections, but also deliver highly toxic substances.
With the OroTox test there is now a method to reliably determine these poisons in the mouth.
The best investigated toxic substances are reactive sulfur compounds such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methyl mercaptan (CH3SH).
They are therefore so stressful for our organism, since they can inhibit and block enzymes, which are necessary for our metabolism.
The consequences can be irreversible tooth- and health damage.
Strictly speaking, the OroTox Test is divided into 2 parts:
This test is a practical quick test to sulfur compounds (thiol-containing compounds) polyamines and total proteins in periodontal Sulcusfluid semiquantitative prove (secreted fluid in the gingival pockets).
The protein toxin OroTox measurement of tests was designed to recognize an increased content of total proteins in Zahnsulkus.
