SalivaScore - The oral indicator for wellness

Early detection and prevention screening

In five minutes, SalivaScore can predict or identify high-risk patients who are likely to experience rapid disease progression.

Periodontal (gum) disease affects more than 2 in 5 adults between the ages of 45 and 64 and is associated with nearly 60 other health problems, including diabetes, heart conditions, and Alzheimer’s disease. National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research Oral Health in America – April 2022 Bulletin

Periodontal disease increases with age, affecting 70% of adults 65 years and older.

The Effects of
Periodontal Disease

Many chronic systemic diseases are linked to the enzymes found in the saliva of patients with periodontal conditions.

The Science

SalivaScore’s patented oral biomarker test detects a measure of aMMP-8, the most prevalent cellular biomarker associated with oral and systemic tissue breakdown and destruction around teeth and implants.

The science behind the aMMP-8 biomarker’s significance has been cited in over 1,000 medical and 400 dental publications over the last 15 years.

The Test

This early detection and prevention screening provides personalized information on the risks of developing periodontal disease and associated medical conditions based on a sample of your saliva.

3 simple steps done conveniently during your exam or cleaning appointment:

  1. Provide saliva sample
