Dental Saliva Testing
When it comes to protecting your smile, the acid in your saliva can often pose one of the biggest threats, due to its ability to cause tooth decay.
Some people are actually thought to be more predisposed to tooth decay simply because they have higher levels of acid present in their saliva.
A simple saliva test carried out by one of our friendly team will shed light on how acidic your saliva is, meaning the most appropriate treatment can be planned accordingly.
On the plus side, saliva also performs many vital functions inside your mouth, protecting your oral health, your teeth and your smile! The enzymes, hormones, antibodies, antimicrobial constituents and cytokines it carries aid the digestive process, while lubricating your mouth which helps you to breathe and swallow.
Saliva can also provide a really valuable insight into the state of your oral and general health, thanks to the biomarkers it contains. By looking at these biomarkers, we can easily and accurately detect diseases, tooth decay and cavities, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer. Which all supports our mission of looking after you with a whole-of-health approach to dentistry.
