    The article discusses a study on the buffer mechanisms in saliva. Researchers collected saliva from people and titrated it in a container containing 2 milliliters (ml.) of distilled water. They found that the buffering ability of saliva is based on its bicarbonate and phosphate content. Mucoid...

    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...

    The article presents a study which examined the buffer capacity of dental plaques. An antimony electrode was used to measure the amount of oral acid produced following the administration of a glucose solution. Results indicate that the buffer capacity of dental plaque is greater than that of...

    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...

    This study measured the flow rate, pH, and buffer capacity of saliva from children with Down syndrome aged 2-60 months. We compared 25 children with Down syndrome with 21 children without Down syndrome. The whole saliva was collected under slight suction and the pH and the buffer capacity were...

    The article presents a study which examined the buffer effect of saliva. The elevation of inorganic phosphate and hydrogen-ion concentration (pH) of dental plaque is a result of the dissolution of salts and sugar increasing phosphorous content of saliva.
