The flow rate of stimulated whole saliva did not differ significantly in relation to dentition in men and premenopausal women in an unmedicated population. In the postmenopausal women the flow rate was lower in full denture wearers and in those having a highly reduced number of occluding pairs of teeth. Full denture wearers had salivary yeasts and lactobacilli more often and with higher counts than fully dentate persons, a group which in any case showed a difference in the yeast distribution between the sexes.
