    Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the level of salivary total proteins, albumin, globulin, and albumin/globulin (A/G) ratio among healthy individuals and patients with chronic gingivitis. Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the salivary total proteins, albumin, globulin, and A/G ratio among healthy individuals and patients with chronic gingivitis. Materials and Methods: The saliva samples were collected from total of 20 individuals where 10 samples from normal individuals as a control group and 10 samples from gingivitis patients and the total protein and albumin levels were estimated through direct biuret method and bromocresol green method, respectively, and the absorbance was estimated using a colorimeter and the specific levels were calculated. Result and Conclusion: Useful diagnostic information can be obtained by determining the total protein, albumin, globulin, and A/G ratio. Significant changes in these values can pin-point specific changes thus saliva being one of the major constituents of the oral cavity; therefore, estimation of total salivary proteins helps in diagnosis of gingivitis thus facilitating early prognosis and treatment.
