- Obesity, salivary flow rate, salivary buffer capacity
Obesity is one of the criteria of nutritional status parameters caused by the accumulation of fat that occurs gradually and influenced by many factors, one of which is the low of physical activity. Differences in nutritional status that occur in each individual leads to the differences in salivary secretion. Saliva flow rate describes the normal, high, low, or very low of the salivary flow. The changes in age, environmental conditions, life and diet affect the presence or absence of impaired salivary function. The objective of this study is to find out the differences of the flow rate and capacity of salivary buffer on the student of dentistry of USU with normal body mass index and obesity. This study is an analytical observational research with cross sectional approach. The sampling of stimulated saliva of the student of Dentistry USU was conducted in the Laboratory of Oral Biology of Dentistry USU using draining method by consecutive sampling according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The saliva flow rate was obtained by measuring the collected saliva in 5 minutes in the saliva pot, while for the salivary buffer capacity measurement using GC Saliva Check Buffer. Data analysis using Post-Hoc ANOVA test showed significant difference in salivary flow rate of subjects with normal body mass index and obesity (p <0.05) so that there was a correlation of body mass index with salivary flow rate (p <0,05) but there was no significant difference in salivary buffer capacity (p <0.05). Meanwhile, the Pearson correlation test showed a significant correlation between salivary buffer capacity and salivary flow rate (p <0.05). So it can be concluded that the difference of body mass index will be related to the salivary flow rate which will affect salivary buffer capacity.
