Evaluation of Salivary Flow and Buffer Capacity Associated to Aged People's Oral Health
Evaluation of Salivary Flow and Buffer Capacity Associated to Aged People's Oral Health

The purpose of this study is to identify the relation of the salivary flow and the buffer capacity of the saliva with medicine, buccal discomfort and auto-related illnesses in aged people.

Study clinical of prevalence. 68 aged, average 70.4 years, SD ± 7.27 represented institution's residents of long permanence. Questionnaire was applied, organizing the data for Software SPSS version 15. The test qui-square of Pearson was used, level of significance 5% and reliable interval 95%. 80% presented pH normal. The salivary Flow: 32.3% very low, 41.2% reduced and 25.5% normal. 30.9% mentioned dry mouth, 22.1% tasting's problems, 17.6% dysphagia and 14.7% burning mouth. Main systemic illnesses: 48.5% declared cardiovascular problems, 17.6% diabetes and 16.2% osteoporosis. 76.5% used medicine. There was a significance statistic between medicine taking and dry mouth (p=0.013), buffer capacity and burning mouth (p=0.019), salivary flow and medicine taking (p=0.048). The low salivary flow and the buffer capacity of the saliva influence in the aged people's health condition, as the drugs influence the results.
