My initial research into the effect of oral pH on health I came across an article that suggests that using fluoride products in an acidic environment has many negative effects on health and that 32% of American children suffer from fluorosis, mostly from naturally occurring fluoride in groundwater!

Given that information, what might be the best way to go about testing one's oral pH?

  • This question crosses the line into asking for medical advice. Just barely, but it does. Could you please edit your second paragraph and reword it to make it a general question and not a how-to for your own health?

    @CareyGregory I understand. Did my change address your concern?

I found this medical/scientific article that reviews 3 different saliva pH testing kits including a litmus paper test.

Litmus paper strips are apparently ubiquitous and many such products available at Walmart, for example.
