[This document has been captured as part of the JMID-section for Grey-literature. Grey (or gray) literature refers to informally published written material that may be difficult to trace via conventional databases and/or journals as it is not formally published or is not widely accessible. However, Grey literature may still be an important source of information. Examples of grey literature include e.g: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]

Saliva composition can vary according to different factors, such as the type of a particular gland as well as duration and nature of the gland stimulus. However, saliva flow rate is considered the most important factor to be analyzed. In addition, the literature has shown that pathologically diminished flow rate is a significant risk factor for caries development, but the cut-off values of saliva needed to cause tooth decay has not been yet established.
