Other research using a maltose-containing lozenge found a potential benefit for xerostomia, and another with a 1% malic acid spray did show a modest increase in salivary flow
This occurs because the automatic nervous system decreases salivary flow
during times of stress, which of course dries out the mucous membranes of the mouth.
In 1998, Izumi et al reported that steroid irrigation of the parotid gland significantly increased salivary flow
rate inpatients with Sjogren syndrome.
The new gel has a pleasant mint flavor to help ensure patient compliance; it contains Ultramulsion[R] and spilanthes to provide a pleasant mouth feel and boost salivary flow
Instead, xylitol actively promotes healthy teeth and gums by stimulating salivary flow
, which aids in the remineralization of tooth enamel.
It could be that a patient has a low salivary flow
because of a particular condition or medicine they are taking.
Patients' unstimulated salivary flow
was measured before and after each treatment period.
and IgA rate is significantly lower in elderly than young people.
42 mm in the left eye, and the salivary flow
rate test produced a level of 1.
We hypothesized that intensive exercising may alter significantly the salivary flow
rate and balance of calcium (Ca), phosphorus (P) and fluoride (F) salivary levels for competitive swimmers while in training at gas-chlorinated swimming-pools.
Xerostomia, or severe dry mouth, is characterized by reduced salivary flow
, which commonly affects patients receiving radiotherapy for head and neck cancer.
Other factors related to paediatric medicines might also contribute to the risk of dental caries, for example, high frequency of ingestion, bedtime consumption, reduced salivary flow
caused by the use of some drugs and high viscosity (implying longer contact time with tooth surfaces).
