Abstract

Unstimulated and stimulated flow rate from minor lower labial glands and the fluoride concentration of resting whole and labial saliva were measured over 15 min using a novel method avoiding eversion of the lips. Resting salivary flow rate was measured as 1.09 ± 0.44 μl/min/cm2 and stimulated flow rate as 3.13 ± 1.05 μl/min/cm2. Secretion rates were significantly (P6, respectively. The secretory capacity of the minor labial glands and the high F concentration in their secretions suggests a significant contribution to the F content of whole saliva. Our non-invasive method permits collection from the minor labial glands of a volume large enough for chemical analysis. It should prove useful for studying the effects of different secretory stimuli.
