13],,,,,,,,,,,, The aim of the present literature review was to present such insight into the possible use of salivary fluid as a potential diagnostic and prognostic tool for the search of numerous diseases as well as for monitoring the treatment outcomes and to assess prognosis in such varied states of derangements of metabolic functions apart from investigating the composition and functions of saliva as well as to describe the factors that influence salivary flow
and its biochemical composition.
22] Salivary cortisol levels are unaffected by salivary flow
rate and are relatively resistant to degradation from enzymes or freeze-thaw cycles.
pSS), and HC have no reason to have salivary flow
alterations: Asashima et al.
The Wharton's duct is longer, has a larger caliber, and is angulated against gravity as it courses around the posterior aspect of the mylohyoid muscle, all of which results in a slower salivary flow
When the child is sleeping, a decrease in salivary flow
allows sugary liquids to remain in the child's mouth for a long time, causing tooth decay.
Since salivary flow
is involved, we investigated whether the improvement of salivary flow
by denture treatment could counteract the symptoms of oral candidiasis.
3) Saliva is very influential on the dental health because of the chemical composition, the buffer capacity (buffer), antimicrobial activity, and salivary flow
rate (flow rate).
In all groups, unstimulated whole salivary flow
rate was determined.
4 Decreased salivary flow
rate has been reported as a consequence of treatment with various types of drugs.
SCP patients showed increased salivary flow
rates and decreased ESSPRI scores after NSPT.
rate, oral colonization with yeasts/oral infection and dental status were assessed and compared between the groups.
1%) had normal stimulated salivary flow
