Abstract

Saliva is a significant secretion in the preservation of oral cavity, preparation of food for chewing and swallowing, remineralization of teeth, neutralization of oral acid and simplification of speech. Decrease or increase of this secretion can cause various oral and general health problems. While hyposalivation leads to xerostomia, hypersalivation results in sialorrhea. Both of them have to be treated with proper management methods. In this review, salivary secretion alterations were identified and current treatment options were discussed.
