ABSTRACT
The article describes a method for testing dental caries activity and focuses on the buffer capacity of saliva in 204 children. The study suggests that the test is effective because it uses inexpensive laboratory materials, is a simple technique that notes changes in the pH level of saliva, and produces reliable results. The conclusion is that a low buffer power in saliva corresponds to a high number of cavities.
