Genetic test to help predict gum disease
One of the largest clinical studies using genetic testing to assess the risk of gum disease will be conducted by the University of Michigan, in agreement with Interleukin Genetics Inc. William Giannobile, professor at University of Michigan dentistry and director of the Michigan Center for Oral Health Research at the School of Dentistry, will lead the study. "It's an exciting study because it's a way to use genetic testing to personalize a dental treatment plan and the frequency of dental care visits of patients as it relates to oral care," Giannobile said. "It's a way to customise patient care."
