It may be hard to kill off oral bacteria, but now there is a way to defend against the acids they produce, by measuring pH and buffer capacity in your saliva.
Cavity pHighter testing strips measure the pH and buffer capacity in your saliva. The strips are best used after a meal when these levels may be low, indicating that acid levels are high. Excessive acid levels may increase your risk for cavities.
PH: pH measurements express the acidity or alkalinity of an aqueous solution such as saliva. The range goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Solutions with pH of less than 7 are acidic; with pH greater than 7 are alkaline.
12-Pack includes 12 bottles with 50 ph strips per bottle.
