Abstract

The DQ10 and DQ5 can be used interchangeably. DQ(A) is most discriminative for drooling severity. For evaluating treatment efficiency the cut-off point can be used. For clinical and research purposes, the DQ5 is time efficient and cost saving while validity, and intrarater and interrater reliability are preserved.
