Get A More Accurate Diagnosis With Salivary Testing

Salivary testing from our dentist at Revive Dental in Marriottsville, MD, is an innovative method of identifying oral health issues in their earliest stages. By analyzing samples of a patient’s saliva, we can offer a higher standard of care through early disease detection, allowing us to formulate more personalized treatment plans.

How is salivary testing conducted?

During a routine dental visit, our dentist or hygienist will swab the inside of your mouth to collect a small sample of your saliva. A specialized laboratory will analyze the sample and identify various markers within the saliva, including bacterial composition, pH levels, and the presence of specific antibodies or enzymes.

What are the benefits of salivary testing?

By analyzing the composition of your saliva, we can determine certain oral diseases, allowing for more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment and potentially halting the advancement of certain conditions like gum disease, tooth decay, or oral infections. Salivary testing can also provide us with insights into oral health-related systemic conditions, such as diabetes or autoimmune disorders. This detailed information allows us to design treatment plans for specific oral health concerns and optimize positive patient outcomes.

Salivary testing is a more comfortable and convenient procedure compared to traditional methods, which may involve more invasive techniques or long waits for results. With salivary testing, you can get timely feedback and more efficient dental care. This personalized approach can lead to a more positive dental experience.
