Abstract : Parotid fluid was collected from 1,810 systemically healthy young adult males under conditions of no exogenous stimulation. Subjects were divided into eight periodontal index categories and the data for flow rate were analyzed statistically. There was no indication that the rate of parotid gland function was in any manner related to periodontal status. (Author)
