Bristle analyzes your oral microbiome to help you measure, understand & improve your oral health

Measure your oral health

The type & abundance of bacteria related to halitosis influence the severity of your symptoms and contribute to your risk for more severe oral health conditions. Tracking where you are can indicate if your oral health is improving and provide early warnings if things start to slip.

Identify what's driving your symptoms

Specific bacteria in your mouth drive halitosis and more serious conditions including gum disease & gingivitis. Understanding which bacteria you have is the first step in treating it.

Get a personalized diet, hygiene & product regimen and 1:1 coaching with a trained hygienist

Factors like your diet & hygiene create an environment in your mouth that harmful bacteria thrive in. Reducing the harmful bacteria & promoting beneficial ones can help improve your oral health.

Chronic bad breath has been bane of my life for years and I've had no idea why! Bristle was the first test to identify what was causing it and help me fix it. Their recommendations went beyond just telling me to brush and floss, and the coaching session was helpful for walking through my results and answering all of my questions.

Omg this is AMAZING!! These results are so helpful and broken down for people to understand complicated science in an easy manner. So eye opening to see EXACTLY (at the bacteria level) what causes my issues so I can figure out better treatment going forward - much more informative and motivating than just hearing to floss more!

I always knew to not eat sugar and floss more. But that's not actually the way people are going to live their lives. The Bristle report helped me better understand how diet and other factors affect my oral health and gave me actionable steps to improve it.

FAQ'S

What does the Bristle test look for?

Bristle profiles your complete oral microbiome - the makeup of 100+ bacteria and fungi species in your mouth. Some of these species are beneficial to our health, while others are harmful and can cause conditions like halitosis, tooth decay, gum inflammation, and more. By analyzing the identity and relative abundance of bacteria in your saliva, Bristle detects the root cause of oral symptoms and connections to other chronic conditions. We also provide scientifically-backed product, diet, and lifestyle recommendations based on your unique oral microbiome.

How do I collect my sample?

Our test uses a small sample of your saliva. To provide your sample, you spit into a small tube containing a clear liquid solution that stabilizes your saliva. You mail back the tube to Bristle's laboratory using the prepaid envelope provided and results are returned online. Detailed step-by-step instructions of the sample collection process are included in each test kit and also available through your account dashboard after registering your kit.

When will I receive my test?

Orders ship within 1-2 days from purchase, and shipping usually takes 3 - 5 business days for delivery. We will provide you with updates on your order by email.

How long does it take to get my results once I return my sample?

Results will be returned to you in 2 - 3 weeks from when you mail your sample back to our lab.

Can I share the results with my dentist or doctor?

Yes! You can easily share your results from inside your dashboard. We encourage you to discuss your results with your dental or health provider (or both!).

What will you do with my data?

Data privacy is a top priority for us and we will never sell your data. We give you choices to control how your personal information is used, stored, or shared. We will never share your data without your consent, and will only ever do so at your request or in the name of advancing the research on oral health, the oral microbiome, and developing more personalized and effective treatments.
