Achieving a healthy mouth with fresh breath is an important goal for everyone.
The BANA test is a simple, painless, chairside, 5 minute express test which can be used to check for the presence of 3 particular bacteria which cause halitosis. These same 3 bacteria are also implicated in (gum) periodontal disease. If the test is positive this indicates that these bacteria are present. The dental surgeon can then use his clinical judgement to assess whether further investigation is required in order to check and diagnose and undertake any treatment needed.
Halitosis and indeed periodontal disease can be present for a long period before any visual symptoms appear or before a patient complains of a problem so this simple test can be an effective first check to help in oral hygiene.
The BANA test was researched and developed by Professor Walter Loesche in the USA
