Gum Disease DNA Testing
DNA Testing determines if you are susceptible to gum disease. The test will also let our dentists know if you are currently suffering from periodontal disease by identifying pathogenic bacteria in the mouth. This test is incredibly important as periodontal disease significantly impacts numerous other aspects of your health.

At Island Tower Dentistry, we are committed to your comfort. Oral conscious sedation is helpful for patients who with low pain thresholds, sensitive gag reflexes or need a large amount of dental work completed. Experiencing anxiety before a dental exam is typical and that’s why at Island Tower Dentistry patients have the option to receive conscious administered by Dr. Van Dyke. The sedative can be requested in two strengths for a variety of calming effects.
Dry Mouth, or Xerostomia, is a very common affliction within the aging population. Dry mouth symptoms range from unpleasant to unbearable and Island Tower Dentistry seeks to relieve our patients of Dry Mouth irritation. Without saliva, the pH balance within the mouth can become damaging to your dental health. Depending on condition severity, there are a number of treatments available at Island Tower Dentistry.
