Significance of measurement

This kit shows the pH and hemoglobin levels in the oral cavity.
Generally, the pH in the oral cavity drops after eating and returns to neutral in about an hour because of the buffer effect of saliva. However, it is reported that tooth decay is likely to occur if the oral cavity becomes acidic for a longer time due to snacks or weakened buffering capacity of saliva. Hemoglobin is a protein that carries oxygen contained in red blood cells in the blood, and detection of this indicates bleeding in the oral cavity. Hemoglobin is detected in saliva when gum bleeding occurs due to periodontal disease or oral mucositis.
Detection of pH and hemoglobin is one indicator to know the oral environment. A good oral environment is expected to help people stay healthy.
