ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the influence acid and alkaline toothpastes have on salivary enzyme activity. It states that toothpastes that alkaline pastes tested with a sugar-free starch suspension and filtrated did not possess reducing properties and did not interfere with the digestion of starch by salivary amylase. It mentions that acid paste tested with a sugar-free starch suspension had a positive result in the reduction test, possibly due to the presence of mucin in saliva.
