Introduction: Given the increasing importance of saliva screening for various diseases and the seek for less risky and less costly ways to diagnose diseases; this study was designed to determine the relationship between oral dryness and osteoporosis. Materials &amp; Methods: Twenty six postmenopausal women without osteoporosis and 27 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis were enrolled in this cross sectional study. The standard questionnaire of xerostomia was filled for all patients. Unstimulated saliva samples were collected by spitting method in the same place and same time. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 18. Independed t test, chi square. Results: The mean volume of saliva in patients with osteoporosis was significantly lower than patients without the osteoporosis (P=0.01), while dry mouth feeling was higher in this group (P<0.01). Conclusion: it seems that there is a positive relationship between osteoporosis and oral dryness feeling in postmenopausal women.
