Saliva buffering test is in need of improvements. This article illustrates the most commonly used saliva buffering ca-pacity tests and its major problems. Starting with Ericsson and his laboratory buffer capacity test and all the way to Kitasako a lot of issues are to release. The aim of this paper is to put saliva buffering tests up to serious discussion.
