Xerostomia part i. relationship to other oral symptoms and salivary gland hypofunction



Xerostomia part i. relationship to other oral symptoms and salivary gland hypofunction



Oral Surgery Oral Medicine Oral Pathology 66(4): 451-458



The prevalence of xerostomia and nine other oral symptoms was studied in 529 subjects (18 years or older) in a family health center. The findings show that (1) dry mouth and several other symptoms are common in an outpatient population and (2) they are a valid indicator of salivary gland hypofunction.
