    Aim: The aim of the current study is to estimate the levels of salivary hemoglobin and examine whether the cutoff values from these tests could be used as a periodontal disease screening tool. Methods: The salivary hemoglobin was estimated for 45 patients using cynmethemoglobin method. 100 μL of saliva was added to 5000 μL of Drabkin’s solution and incubated for 20 min, and the optical density was measured using colorimeter under 540 nm wavelength. The optical density of standard, test, and blank was obtained, and the results were calculated and tabulated. Results: In the current study, the mean hemoglobin value in the periodontitis group which was 3.1 μg/dl and the gingivitis group which was 0.71 μg/dl was significantly very high when compared to control group which was 0.1 μg/dl. Conclusion: Salivary hemoglobin levels can be used as a noninvasive, economic tool for periodontal screening in mass population and a viable alternative for predicting prognosis and treatment options.
