Study on Combined Quantitative Light-Induced Fluorescence (QLFTM) and Calcium Assay for Screening of Remineralization Potential of Human Saliva

The current study first determined the biological distributions of salivary ion levels of calcium and phosphate among adult populations, and then looked at the impact of salivary calcium contents on enamel remineralization using a human saliva model (HSM) as an ex vivo experimental system using whole saliva as a reaction mixture for mineral resources, as measured by combined Quantitative Light-induced Fluorescence (QLFTM) and a human saliva model (HSM) as an ex vivo experimental system using whole saliva This study focused on salivary mineral contents, and it was shown that salivary calcium and phosphate ions varied greatly between individuals. From a clinical standpoint, the current findings suggested that (1) some populations’ remineralization potential is insufficient, putting them at a higher risk of dental caries, and (2) QLFTM was sensitive enough to detect saliva-induced mineral recovery of enamel within 24 hours, suggesting that the combined means of HSM and QLFTM could be used as a non-invasive clinical test to screen remineralization (caries recovery) potential of human saliva samples.
