HIV can be detected in saliva but the saliva doesn't carry the virus in its infectious form. That is my understanding. In fact, saliva helps brakdown the virus and acts as a barrier.
You didn't read that at all? Saliva is NOT infectious.

An oral test is not a Saliva test.

The OraSure test doesn't use saliva. It uses an fluid called oral mucosal transudate, which lives in the cheeks and gums.
