Forward Science Technologies Launches Chair Side Test For Oral pH, phID™
With your mouth being the gateway to your body, there is a current emphasis in oral health and oral pH is a major focus that. Being able to monitor pH is a goal of healthcare providers, and with the launch of phID clinicians can now do so. Continuing to enhance oral healthcare with additional diagnostic tests, FST's phID test is the first standalone oral pH test on the market.
phID is a simple, chair side test that allows clinicians to quantify the oral pH of their patients. With this data, clinicians can now quantify the risks associated with each patient. This pH test could change the way clinicians diagnose and treat patients.
If a person's mouth is acidic, that person is prone to tooth decay, has increased levels of bacteria in their mouth, making them prone to gum disease (gingivitis)
"What does pH have to do with health? Everything! The missing component to chair side pH testing is finally here. By knowing the pH of our patients saliva we can determine their buffering capacity as it relates to remineralization, increased risk for caries infections and optimize treatment recommendations. I am excited to add phID to my risk assessment protocol to also educate the patients on the ill-effects of some of the OTC products with an acidic pH and its' potential to demineralize enamel and cause more damage than good. phID is a game changer in patient health and wellness!" explains OralID representative and oral health advocate, Debbie Z. Sabatini, RDH.
With the addition of phID, Forward Science Technologies has once again added to their diagnostic services to promote oral health. From discovery with OralID, intermediary testing with CytID, HPV testing with hpvID, gold standard diagnosis with PathID, and chair side oral pH testing with phID, FST has every option needed for clinicians to change lives!
