Liquid № 1 is used for revealing inflammatory processes in soft tissues of oral cavity (Schiller-Pisarev test).
This test evaluates degree of periodontium inflammation and its treatment effectiveness. The test is used for determination of inflammation area to be treated in case of gingivactomy and parodontal sockets curettage, for determination of under-gingival deposits.

Liquid №3 is used for revealing of soft and hard dental plaque and for evaluation of oral cavity hygiene by a dentist or by a patient himself at home.
The properties of COLOR-TEST №1 containing iodine, potassium iodide and the base are determined by the capability of glycogen (which quantity is increasing in case of inflammation) to give coloration in the process of interaction with iodine-containing solutions. When applying the liquid to soft tissues of the oral cavity, inflamed areas are colored.
COLOR-TEST №2 contains basic fuchsine which adsorbs on damaged protein of tooth hard tissues and gives red-violet coloration to softened enamel and dentine. Healthy tooth tissues, i.e. enamel and mineralized dentine at the same time will not be colored. Thus, the dentist can determine the level of surgical intervention.
COLOR-TEST №3 contains methylene blue which gives blue color to bacterial dental deposit without changing color of intact hard tooth tissues and mucosa.
