OralFitnessCheck (OFC) is the first and only chairside (point of care) biomarker test for the oral cavity. It provides real-time insight into the condition of the mouth. The OFC quantifies an important biomarker (aMMP-8), providing an objective indication of a person's real-time oral health status. While biomarkers may be new to the oral health field, biomarkers have been commonly used in medicine for many years and for various clinical applications, including those related to cardiovascular disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, certain cancers, and more.
Our mission is to support clinicians by providing patented technology and all the implementation, integration, and educational support services at every step so you can help your patients obtain and maintain optimal oral health. Our oral wellness products are designed to help you communicate the importance of optimal daily oral hygiene with your patients so that they are more highly motivated to adhere to the dental care necessary to maintain their natural teeth and implants for life.
OralFitnessCheck is a simple saliva or oral fluid screening test that takes 30 seconds to administer and provides a numerical readout of the patient’s Oral Fitness Score in just 5 minutes. For patients, their Oral Fitness Score gives them greater insight into the health of their mouth motivating them to “take action” by performing optimal daily oral hygiene and accepting the recommended treatment.
OralFitnessCheck measures the amount of the biomarker aMMP-8 in oral fluid. This fluid is a combination of gingival sulcular fluid and saliva. The Oral Fitness Score also provides a measure by which the patient and clinician can understand the patient’s homecare compliance between appointments.
Please note the test is not a diagnostic test; it is an oral fitness test that assists oral health care providers and patients with information in combination with an oral examination, giving a real-time measure of potential disease activity or breakdown.
Immune fitness is the immune system's ability to do what it do it does best: Protect us from dangerous pathogens without also damaging the body itself in the process.
If the immune system has an overly active response to a pathogen (such as periodontal bacteria) it can destroy the natural soft and hard tissue that support our teeth and dental implants in the process. This indicates poor oral fitness.
