9],,, Many researchers have made use of sialometry
and sialochemistry to diagnose systemic illnesses, monitoring general health, and as an indicator of risk for diseases creating a close relationship between oral and systemic health.
was performed using the spitting method.
Unstimulated whole saliva was measured by sialometry
Sialometry is a reliable tool for clinical evaluation of xerostomia.
Assessment of salivary flow rates: Sialometry (measurement of salivary flow rates) was performed using a whole unstimulated saliva production test.
Additional testing may include sialometry
to measure saliva flow and parotid scintigraphy, a nuclear medicine test, to detect parotid adenomas (Chang et al.
and sialochemistry: diagnostic tools for Sjogren's syndrome.
The researchers also measured saliva flow rates using standardized sialometry
and sialochemistry: a non-invasive approach for diagnosing Sjogren's syndrome.
Data from sialometry
revealed that patients in the PA group obtained higher mean RSFR and SSFR values than individuals in the CT group (p < 0.
