Introducing the Cavity pHighter System!
For the first time ever, rapidly test your risk for caries!
Cavity pHighter test strips are a painless and immediate way to assess caries risk with scientific salivary testing. Combat high risk test strip results with Cavity pHighter Mints designed to increase salivary flow and buffer capacity to promote healthy saliva.
A revolutionary system to reduce caries and promote healthy saliva
Cavity pHighter strips are designed for quick and easy testing and simple to understand visual results.
Once tested, the use of Cavity pHighter mints increase the saliva pH as well as increase salivary flow and buffer capacity to promote healthy saliva.
Cavity pHighter Is about improving patient care
Two critical factors contributing to the risk of dental caries are pH level and buffer capacity in saliva. The correlation between high pH and high saliva buffering capacity and low incidence of caries has been proven.
Cavity pHighter strips can quickly and accurately identify the pH level and buffer capacity in a patient’s saliva to indicate the patient’s risk for caries.
Based on caries risk, treatment can be curated to give the patient the most successful path to reduce caries and maintain a healthy salivary environment.
Cavity pHighter is about improving your practice
Implementing regular testing and documenting results at the beginning of each office visit can greatly improve patient treatment.
This allows the dental professional to create different care plans for patients with all risk levels. It opens up the conversation for better dialog with patients and gives patients personalized treatment plans that will only increase their dental health.
A One-of-a-Kind Caries Treatment Solution for Dental Practices
Testing caries risk with Cavity pHighter will open a better dialog with your patients and will increase the level of engagement your patients have in their oral care. Your practice will create additional revenue from in-office salivary testing and continue to increase revenue from providing test strips and mints for take-home use.
Implementing the Cavity pHighter system to your practice
The test strips are very inexpensive, about 17 cents per test strip with our bulk pack. Simply test each patient right when they walk-in. The doctor or hygienist can review the results with your patient and setup a treatment plan.
We’ve designed three simple treatment plans, or customize plans on your own. You may instruct a patient to purchase a bottle of strips and mints and test frequently combined with Cavity pHighter mints or increased fluoride treatments.
The advantage of Cavity pHighter Mints
Cavity pHighter mints are the easy, minty-fresh solution to an acidic mouth. Improve patient hygiene by increasing saliva pH, saliva flow and increase buffer capacity by releasing soluble calcium to promote healthy tooth enamel and an improved oral environment.
While your patients are maintaining a healthy mouth, your practice will be earning revenue by providing mints and strips for home us.
Our 3 Treatment Plans
We’ve made it simple, but you are the expert and can design or personalize care plans for your patients:
Low Risk Care Plan:
Patients simply maintain their current oral hygiene care and test and evaluate every 6 months.
Medium Risk Care Plan:
Increase oral hygiene care. Provide testing strips for home use, send home Cavity pHighter mints for use after each meal, increase fluoride treatments, and evaluate every 6 months.
High Risk Care Plan:
Increase oral hygiene care. Provide testing strips for home use, send home Cavity pHighter mints for use after each meal, increase fluoride treatments, and evaluate every 3 months.
Since I started using pH test strips my patients now truly understand how to fight tooth decay. In just a few seconds they can clearly see and understand their own saliva and how it relates to oral health. Patients love the Cavity pHighter test strips and usually ask for an extra to try at home after eating something sweet!! These pH strips really help start a great conversation about prevention and daily dietary habits.
After attending Anne’s course, The Saliva Chronicles, I began implementing pH testing in my clinical practice using the CAO Groups Cavity pHighter test strips. The Cavity pHighter test strips measure the pH and buffering capacity of saliva. Implementing pH and buffering testing into practice is a simple and easy way to identify oral health risks. Not only does pH testing provide valuable information but, it has also changed the conversation I have with my patients. I can discuss individual patients' oral health risks and the best ways to prevent caries development. The added benefit of suggesting the Cavity pHighter mints after meals to aid in the buffering process has made everything about this product a WIN, WIN!
As a dental hygiene educator, I was excited to experiment with the Cavity pHighter testing strips and hopefully pique the interest of my students in the area of salivary pH. We tried the strips during an early morning class meeting. Some students had brushed earlier that morning, some had eaten breakfast or sipped on their coffee during the meeting, and some had tried some xylitol gum just prior to testing. The process was simple with immediate, impactful results and the students were eager to discuss their findings. Seeing their own pH level and comparing the test results with classmates made the topic of saliva pH testing personal and meaningful. I teach my student that an effective dental hygienist should be able to teach their patients about how their acidic oral environment contributes to caries risk AND share solutions that will improve oral health. At our next class meeting, we will test the pH of our saliva before and after use of the Cavity pHighter mints. I look forward to the class discussion that will follow.
Once saliva is tested, the patient can see the results in less than 30 seconds. That visual evidence about pH and buffering starts an informative conversation with the patient. As a dental hygienist, the ability to literally test and show the level of acidity in the oral cavity is significant. Being able to show a patient what is really happening is invaluable. The conversation regarding mitigation begins. All in all, the Cavity pHighter strips have become part of my set up for every patient.
As a dental provider and dry mouth patient, I have found so much value in using the CAO Cavity pHighter strips. I can monitor my resting pH and my pH levels after using various dry mouth products to ensure the products are safe. I love that these strips check pH AND buffering capacity. It is so important to have all the data in one easy strip and makes it ideal to implement chairside. It is a great tool to show my acid reflux patients and family members how low their oral pH stays on a daily basis. When patients can see evidence of their risk, they are much more likely to comply with our dental recommendations, which in turn lowers their risk and makes them healthier patients!
