The Secrets of Saliva: What Your Patient’s Saliva is Trying to Tell You
I consider saliva the “liquid gold” of the body. Saliva’s functions include antibacterial defense, protection, facilitation of taste, digestion, ionic exchange between tooth surfaces, and buffering action, which is imperative to a person’s overall health. In this program, I will focus on biomarkers we can test while working with patients chairside: pH, periodontal pathogens testing, and xerostomia evaluation.
- Define biomarkers in oral and systemic health and how they impact disease
- Review the composition of saliva in a symbiotic mouth.
- Discover how dental dysbiosis occurs, how to identify it, and how to treat it
- Identify how to implement oral biomarker testing chairside
