Saliva Testing

Saliva plays a vital role in your oral health as it’s your body’s natural defense against food acid. A lack of saliva or unbalanced pH levels can increase your susceptibility to dental cavities. A simple, pain-free test can analyze your saliva and its ability to protect teeth.

The Dentists can take a simple swab of your saliva and in only a few seconds know if your saliva is helping or hindering your oral health.

Once diagnosed, if your saliva is not providing adequate tooth protection, The Dentists can recommend and prescribe a regime of antimicrobial mouth rinses and supplements. This will be discussed with you in detail and you may be required to return in several weeks for a follow up test.
