A simple test will reveal whether you will be at risk for tooth and gum disease, says New York businessman.

Thomas Cornwell, Elmira, NY says a quick, painless oral test can tell whether you have a high count of decay-causing bacteria in your mouth. It can also indicate what you need to do to make your teeth & gums decay-proof.

"This really is a key test to figuring out what is wrong with a person's oral ecology," says Cornwell.

"This test is for simple enzyme-reactive bacteria, in the plaque along or under the gumline, which are indicated as being high-risk factors for developing periodontal disease."

"If you have a high bug count, you have to make sure you get rid of the bacteria and use a common-sense approach to dental care. If you do, your problems will go away."

To have the test done, you simply take a plaque sampling, smear it on a test strip and wait 24 hours while the bacteria react with the enzyme reagent. The test costs $57 and comes with enough material to get you well on the path to acheiving a better oral environment.

"Since periodontal diseases develop over a long period of time, most people don't even become aware they are affected until a lot of damage has already been done," says Cornwell. "The test has a big psychological effect. If you see the results and realize your mouth is crawling with these bugs, that makes quite an impact!"

Cornwell says that those with high bacteria count can drastically reduce their risk of decay by following a simple protocol and using a special rinse every day. Even simple, homemade formulations can be very effective in keeping your mouth disease-free.

Are you at risk? "Statistics show that anywhere from 75% - 95% of all Americans are," says Cornwell. "The key is 'knowing' it and 'doing' something about it."
