Is the spit guilty?
When a patient presents new signs of abrasion or rapid tooth decay, hypersensitivity, oral halitosis or any other major change, the first question we ask dentists is what has been the cause of this oral imbalance.
Clinical Prario have incorporated into our appointments oral hygiene, a novel system for analyzing saliva. This split test is to identify whether changes in the state of split may be a factor involved in the development of more caries and periodontal problems and motivate the patient to improve the state of your oral health.
Thus, knowing the PH, quality and buffering capacity of saliva, we can determine which patients are at higher risk for tooth decay, so we can plan an appropriate, personalized program of treatment and prevention for each of our patients.
The test is simple to perform and gives us valuable information to educate our patients in good oral hygiene and a correct eating habits. In short: YES, the split is guilty.
