Description The review describes the advantages and disadvantages of commercial tests currently available to dentists on the Czech (or EU) market for diagnosing the dental caries and/or periodontal disease in children and adults, for selection of optimal therapeutic procedures and for veryfying of the treatment efficiency. These tests are intended for dental practice; testing can be performed directly in the dentist’s office or in an external laboratory. The saliva quantity and quality, the number of selected cariogenic and/or periodontal bacteria, or the genetic predisposition of the patient (variability in the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 gene) are evaluated. Several variants of kits with different sensitivity and accuracy are available; some of them require additional instrumentation. In the context of strengthening prevention and oral care, several tests for the determination of the individual susceptibility to these diseases can be an effective tool in behavioral intervention not only in patients with risk finding.
