GC AMERICA will introduce Saliva-Check, an examination tool that you can use to educate the patient, assist in preventive treatment planning and use to initiate changes in the patient's oral hygiene. Saliva-Check will allow you to identify patients with medium and high risk factors to help plan preventive treatment strategies that will bring the saliva back into balance to maintain its vital role in the protection of teeth. With the use of Saliva-Check you can identify, measure and assess the patient's possible caries risk based on saliva condition. The test will allow you to measure the following:
** Salivary Condition
** Resting and Stimulated Saliva pH
** Saliva Buffering Capacity
** Stimulated Saliva Flow
Once saliva problems are identified, the practitioner can recommend a course of preventive care, which includes introducing supplements (fluoride, CPP-ACP, chlorhexidine), lifestyle changes (increase water intake, decrease diuretic intake-caffeine, alcohol, etc.), increase saliva stimulation (chewing gum and low acid foods), altering oral hygiene regimen (increase brushing and flossing methods). There are 10 Saliva-Check single patient kits per box. The complete Saliva-Check procedure takes less than 10 minutes per patient.
