Our saliva diagnostic tests on the Central Coast are important for dental health maintenance.
Your saliva can reveal a lot about your dental health and help us to diagnose a range of dental issues.
Saliva testing can also help us to come up with the right preventative treatments to stop oral decay and diseases that you may be prone to before they take hold. Book in for your saliva diagnostic testing at our Lake Haven practice on the Central Coast.
Why is saliva important?
Many people do not realise the important role saliva plays in ensuring good dental health. It contains important minerals, antibodies and enzymes that help fight off tooth decay and gum disease, and work together to protect your teeth.
Your saliva also helps to keep your mouth fresh and clean, prevents bacteria build up, and contains biomarkers we can examine to reveal whether you’re at a higher risk of developing certain dental conditions.
