Saliva, a biological fluid is steadily emerging as a potent diagnostic tool in modern day health and disease. Advances in molecular biology have led to the invent of certain markers for diagnosis of conditions like oral cancer and dental caries to name a few. In addition, saliva based biomarkers are cost– effective, accurate and provide a noninvasive diagnostic approach. Detecting pathologies at earlier stages can significantly increase survival rates and affect treatment prognosis. The present article discusses various salivary biomarkers that can aid in the diagnosis of many such systemic conditions.
