American Dental Association answeredA number of drugs can be detected in saliva. Saliva evaluation technology is currently used to test for drugs of abuse such as cocaine, ethanol and opiates. The technology can also be used for therapeutic monitoring of drugs such as digoxin, methadone and some anticonvulsants. In the future, dentists may have new technologies that will let them offer fast and effective saliva-based tests for screening various diseases.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
