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.
and sialochemistry are noninvasive, objective measures of salivary flow, their sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing Sjogren syndrome have yet to be properly defined.
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.
