Background Improving the quality of life is part of the global agenda. The focus is predominantly on prevention of socially significant diseases. Combating dental caries-related diseases is a top priority as it has a huge impact on people’ssocial lives. Therefore, the purpose of the work was to study the changes in the molecular composition of saliva from subjects with multiple caries lesions using spectroscopic methods of analysis to identify potential tissue markers of caries development for predictive, preventive and personalised medical services. Objectives and methods The molecular composition of mixed saliva (oral fluid) from subjects with and without multiple caries was analysed with the use of spectroscopic techniques, FTIR with synchrotron radiation for the excitation. The IR spectra of the oral fluid as well as the calculated mineral-organic, carbon-phosphate, Amide II/Amide I and protein/thiocyanate ratios were compared between subjects with and without multiple caries. Results This complex analysis of the obtained experimental data determined that the molecular composition of the oral fluid from those with multiple caries differed from those without caries; the organic-mineral balance in the oral fluid of those with multiple caries shifted towards a reduction in the mineral complexes, accompanied by an increase in the organic
