  • when looking in the mirror teeth become difficult to see
  • holding the tooth brush is getting more problematic
  • leftovers are getting stock between the teeth more easily, because the distances between the teeth are getting bigger
  • the location of the mouth is changing, due to the intake of drugs, which leads to xerostomia

How does cavity emerge?

The disease of cavity is an utterly complex process. Especially the consumption of sugary nutrition and beverages has normally the perfect functioning, natural balance of the “biotope” oral cavity, changed.

There are billions of microorganisms, bacteria and bacilli living there. Some usually harmless microorganisms even develop a dangerous activity if sweets, meals or beverages are being processed with hidden sugar.
They breed with lightning speed, build a tenacious sticky mass, and which leads to tartar (plaque) on the teeth.
They also produce during their metabolism an aggressive acid. From that acid, the first attack will be on the hardest substance of the body, the dental enamel and afterwards the dentinal will be destroyed.

The saliva test will show your individual risk of cavity

Even before any teeth damages have occurred, the risk of cavity, which is different for every human being, can be determined by the saliva diagnostic.

Karies-Prophylaxe - Analyse

Similarly to the blood analysis in which the doctor evaluates your blood sugar or your level of fat, and also builds his therapy relying on these values; the modern science did also develop a diagnostic process for dental medicine: the saliva test. With its help, the individual cavity risk can be detected and controlled.
The amount of the cavity causing microorganisms-streptococcus mutans and lactobacilli can be determined through the bacteriological analysis per millimetre.

The saliva pH value

The acidity level will be determined by the pH-value. Scientists have the middle or “natural” value of the saliva with 6.4.
The value changes constantly and is influenced by alimentation and the activity of the dental plaque.
If the acidity level will decrease underneath 5.6 as for example when eating candy, there will be a saliva acidity increase. With the increase of acidity, the risk of getting cavity is much higher, because the natural cushion saliva effect is reduced.

Precise analysis need time

The amount of saliva needed will be taken out of your mouth with a specially developed test strip and brought on a hotbed. The bacteria (lactobacilli and streptococcus) will breed for two days in an incubator.

After proceeding with the micro bacteria analysis, the concentration of the bacteria in the saliva will be established and compared with a grid per millimetre of saliva.
The lactobacilli gives you a clue about the nutritional behaviour and the consumption about fermented carbohydrates (f. e.g. sugar). Whereas the amount of streptococcus mantus determines the individual risk of cavity.

Preventing cavity will be more successful

The results of the saliva test gives you an individual, targeted and therefore an effective reduction of your personal cavity risk.
To attain that goal, several consultations and professional, preventive dental measures have to be taken into account and are necessary for

  • Nutrition
  • Oral hygiene
  • Amelodentinal hardening through fluoride
  • Cavity prevention through fissures – sealing
