Caries and erosion are disease outcomes, but where is the data about a patient’s salivary pH level or buffering capacity? Accurate information can help explain why some are at a higher risk for these conditions.

It takes less than one minute to determine pH and buffering values. Real-time information changes the conversation. Now both the patient and the clinician can focus on two parallel strategies: an accurate prevention plan and implementing any necessary treatments.

  • Recognize the urgency for adding salivary diagnostic testing
  • Create a protocol to add in-office salivary testing
  • Create a plan to successfully implement in-office salivary testing protocols
  • Identify how testing improves communication and treatment acceptance
  • Develop a strategic plan for team engagement
