Saliva Testing

Saliva testingSaliva Testing is a service offered to patients with extremely high incidence of caries, despite exceptional dental hygiene habits, used to identify possible outlying causes of caries. Saliva testing evaluates the quality, pH levels and buffering capacity of a patient’s saliva.

Prior to a saliva diagnostic procedure, patients are asked to refrain from consuming food, drinking, brushing teeth or using mouthwash for at least one hour prior to appointment time.
