ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research about oral fluids. Research in oral biology, including oral fluid immunology, is important in addressing dental diseases. Researchers could develop an antigen which could stimulate the production of antibodies for preventing the adherence of microorganisms on the teeth and mucous membranes. The control of unstimulated or resting salivary flow is also a major area in oral fluid research. The effects of light and darkness on the function of human salivary glands are being studied to investigate ways to control resting salivary flow.
