Alzheimer's

Saliva tests are being used to measure biomarkers associated with Alzheimer's, such as beta-amyloid, tau protein, and inflammatory markers. Salivary tests could help people who may be at risk for developing the disease or even those in the early stages of the disease.

Saliva tests could also be used to monitor the progression of the disease and help track response to treatments.

Alzheimer's
Cancer

Cancer

The salivary test can detect the presence of cancer biomarkers in the saliva, which can indicate an individual’s risk for developing certain types of cancer. These biomarkers are associated with specific types of cancers, such as breast and oral cancers. The test is non-invasive, meaning that it does not require tissue samples or radiation. Furthermore, the results are very precise and can provide an early warning to those at risk for cancer.

By detecting these biomarkers in saliva, healthcare professionals can begin treatment earlier and improve the chances of successful outcomes. The salivary test from Dentulu powered by Oral DNA is a promising new service that could potentially revolutionize the way cancer is detected and treated.

Diabetes

The salivary test for Diabetes is used to detect the presence of glucose in saliva, which indicates that diabetes may be present. The test works by measuring the amount of glucose present in saliva and then comparing it with known reference levels. If the results are higher than normal, it could suggest that the person is at risk for developing diabetes. This test can help identify people who have early signs of diabetes, even before they experience any physical symptoms.

It can also be used to monitor those with established diabetes, as well as to detect glucose levels in people who are not diabetic. The salivary test for Diabetes has been shown to be more accurate than other screening methods, and it is a non-invasive method that does not require the collection of blood samples.

Diabetes
Strokes

Strokes

The salivary test for strokes is used to measure levels of a certain biomarker, homocysteine, which has been linked to an increased risk of stroke. High levels of this biomarker in the saliva indicate that there may be too much homocysteine in your body and that you are at a higher risk for stroke. The results of this test can help identify individuals who may be at a higher risk for stroke and can help inform decisions about lifestyle changes that could reduce the risk of stroke.

Additionally, the salivary test may be used to monitor levels of homocysteine in people who have already had a stroke in order to assess the effectiveness of treatment and prevention measures.

Premature Birth

The salivary test can be used to detect certain hormones that are associated with an increased risk of premature birth. Elevated levels of cortisol, progesterone, and estradiol in the saliva have been linked to an increased likelihood of preterm labor. Saliva tests may also provide information about other factors that influence a woman’s health and the health of her fetuses, such as levels of stress and other hormones.

By using this test, healthcare providers can identify women at increased risk for preterm birth and intervene accordingly to reduce the likelihood of premature delivery. Additionally, research suggests that saliva testing may help predict how a woman’s pregnancy will progress over time, allowing healthcare providers to better anticipate and prepare for any potential complications.

Premature Birth
Heart disease

Heart disease

The connection between the salivary test and heart disease is that saliva contains biomarkers that can be used to measure certain health indicators related to heart disease. A study conducted in 2018 found that the saliva of individuals with coronary artery disease contained higher levels of certain proteins compared to those without any cardiac issues. These proteins are associated with inflammation, a risk factor for heart disease, and can be used to measure the severity of coronary artery disease.

Additionally, researchers have found that saliva contains a variety of hormones that can be measured to assess cardiovascular risk. For example, high levels of cortisol in saliva are associated with higher levels of stress, which is linked to an increased risk of developing heart disease. Therefore, salivary testing can provide valuable information to help assess individuals’ risk of developing heart disease and can be used to guide preventative measures.

Inflammation

The salivary test has been shown to be a reliable biomarker of inflammation. Studies have found that there is a strong correlation between the levels of certain inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein and interleukins in saliva, and those found in the blood. This means that salivary testing can provide an accurate measure of the activity of the inflammatory response, which can be used to diagnose and monitor inflammatory diseases. Additionally, salivary testing is much less invasive than blood tests, making it a preferred option for measuring inflammation.

Saliva also contains additional information about the health of the body that can be used to determine the underlying cause of inflammation. This makes saliva an invaluable tool for understanding the causes of inflammation and developing treatments that target the underlying source, rather than just treating the symptoms.

How do I know if my saliva is healthy or not?

If you have any concerns about your teeth, it's best to address them early on. This way, problems can usually be corrected before any damage occurs. Your hygienist can perform a simple saliva test to identify if you are at risk of developing dental problems.
