Intervention Details:
  • Diagnostic Test: Analysis of the saliva
    IFN-, IL-10, IL-1b, IL-4 and IL-6

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. saliva flow rate [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Unstimulated salivary flow rate. Pathological < or 1.5 ml/ 15 minutes.

  2. Xerostomia [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) for xerostomia severity (0 cm: no xerostomía , 10cm : very severe xerostomia ).

  3. Interleukins [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Analytes in saliva IFN-(pg/ml), IL-10(pg/ml), IL-1b(pg/ml), IL-4 (pg/ml)and IL-6 (pg/ml)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Oral Exam [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Caries number, natural teeth number

  2. Periodontal evaluation [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    periodontal( gingival index, bleeding index, clinical attachment level, probing depth,number dental implant .A periodontal probe will be inserted between the tooth and the gum in the gingival sulcus and a measurement of the pocket depth will be measured by a trained dentist in all subjects according to American Academy of Periodontology classification of periodontal diagnosis
