  1. 1. Unstimulated human whole saliva flow rate in relation to hyposalivation and dental caries

    Author : Håkan Flink; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Dental caries; iron deficiency; serum ferritin; unstimulated whole saliva; resting saliva; xerostomia; dry mouth; circadian rhythm.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Salivary secretion is influenced by a large number of factors, including the circadian rhythm, making the detection of reduced salivary flow (hyposalivation) difficult. This is important since severely reduced salivary secretion has been associated with an increased risk for dental caries and may be a sign of a general disease, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on the prevalence of reduced salivary flow rate in relation to general health and dental caries, and effect of iron supplementation

    Author : Håkan Flink; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Unstimulated whole saliva; stimulated whole saliva; resting saliva; xerostomia; dry mouth; hyposalivation; caries; remaining teeth; body mass index; iron deficiency; serum ferritin; circadian rhythm;

    Abstract : Background: Reduced salivary flow is a condition that affects oral health. Its prevalence is unknown in young and middle-aged adults and there is no known treatment that permanently increases the salivary flow rate. Reduced salivary flow is related to dental caries, the most common oral disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Minor Salivary Gland Secretion

    Author : Lars Eliasson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; age; dental plaque pH; dentures; gender; health; IgA; medication; minor salivary glands; oral dryness; saliva; salivary secretion rate;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this series of studies has been to examine palatal, buccal and labial minor salivary gland secretions in relation to age and gender and other factors and conditions that could have effects on the saliva. Further aims were to analyze minor salivary gland secretions in relation to feelings of oral dryness and dental plaque pH. READ MORE

  4. 4. Oral health in patients with chronic kidney disease

    Author : Royne Thorman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a complex disorder in which active intervention leads to longer survival expectancy. Oral diseases are complex disorders caused mainly by bacterial, fungal, or viral infections, where primary defense mechanisms are influenced. READ MORE

  5. 5. In vivo evaluations of the neutralizing effect of a hydroxyl ion-releasing resin composite and a prophylactic gel on plaque acidogenicity : measured by the microtouch method

    Author : Anitha Persson; Jan van Dijken; Peter Lingström; Anette Oliveby; Umeå universitet; []
