Abstract
Kserostomija nije bolest, ali može biti simptom različitih medicinskih stanja, nuspojava zračenja glave i vrata ili nuspojava različitih lijekova. Kako bi dijagnosticirali kserostomiju, koristimo se testovima prikupljanja sline (sijalometrija). Vrijednosti sveukupne sline koje su manje od 0,1 ml/min se smatraju kserostomijom, iako smanjena sekrecija ne mora uvijek biti povezana sa osjećajem suhoće. Cilj našeg istraživanja je bio istražiti mogućnost povećanja salivarne sekrecije upotrebom niskoenergetske laserske terapije (low level laser therapy – LLLT). LLLT je neinvazivna, bezbolna i atermalna terapija, temeljena na biološkim stimulativno-regenerativnim, protuupalnim i analgetskim učincima. Također se pokazalo da LLLT ima virostatski i bakteriostatski učinak. Neka od objašnjenja analgetskog učinka niskoenergetske laserske terapije su : LLLT povećava stvaranje ATP-a, poboljšava lokalnu mikrocirkulaciju, povećava protok limfe, povisuje razinu serotonina i endorfina, pojačava protuupalno djelovanje putem smanjene sinteze prostaglandina. Zbog svog biostimulativnog učinka LLLT se naziva biostimulativnom laserskom terapijom. U našem istraživanju je sudjelovalo 20 ispitanika ( 15 žena i 5 muškaraca) dobi između 50 i 75 godina. Sveukupna nestimulirana slina je bila prikupljena prije i nakon terapije niskoenergetskim laserom. 20 ispitanika je bilo tretirano 5 dana u tjednu kroz 4 uzastopna tjedna sa Ga-Al-As (galij- aluminij-arsen) diodnim laserom od 685 nm. Rezultati su pokazali značajan porast salivarne sekrecije nakon terapije niskoenergetskim laserom. Stoga, možemo preporučiti niskoenergetsku lasersku terapiju kao učinkovitu metodu za poboljšanje kvalitete života bolesnika sa kserostomijom.

Xerostomia is not a disease, but it may be a symptom of various medical conditions, a side effect of a radiation to the head and neck, or a side effect of a wide variety of medications. Xerostomia is frequently associated with decrease in the flow rate of saliva. We use salivary collection tests (sialometry) to diagnose xerostomia. Values of whole saliva that are less than 0,1 ml/min are tipically considerd xerostomic, although reduced flow may not always be associated with feeling of dryness. The aim of our research was to investigate is it LLLT (low level laser therapy) able to increase salivary flow rate. LLLT is a non invasive, painless and athermal therapy, based on biological estimulative-regenerative, anti-inflammantory and analgesic effects. LLLT also appears to have a virustatic and bacteriostatic effect. Some explanation of analgesic effect of LLLT are: it increases ATP production, improves local microcirculation, increases lymphatic flow, increased serotonin and endorphins, increased anti-inflammatory effects trough reduced prostaglandin synthesis. Because of it´s biostimulative effect LLLT is also called biostimulative laser therapy. In our research participated 20 subjects (15 women and 5 men) between age of 50 and 75. The whole unstimulated saliva was collected before and after LLLT. 20 subjects were treated five days in week for four consecutive weeks with a 685 nm Ga-Al-As (Gallium-Aluminium-Arsenide) diode laser. Results showed significatively increased salivary flow rate after LLLT. Therefore, we may recommend LLLT as an effective method to improve the quality of life of patient with xerostomia.
