Effects of fluoride chewing gum on stimulated salivary flow rate and fluoride content

Effects of fluoride chewing gum on stimulated salivary flow rate and fluoride content

Chang Gung Medical Journal 24(1): 44-49

To measure the stimulated salivary flow rates generated by sorbitol gum, fluoride gum and paraffin wax control, and to assess the salivary fluoride clearance pattern in fluoride chewing gum, 6 healthy subjects were instructed to chew paraffin wax (control), and sorbitol and fluoride gums (0.1 mg F/stick) 5 times per day over 21 days (Taiwan; date not given). Stimulated saliva samples were collected for each subject at 7, 14, 21 days at 3 pm after chewing of the gum.
