- The authors performed the taste threshold tests in two patients complaining taste problem who visited the Department
of Oral Diagnosis, Seoul National University Dental Hospital. The taste thresholds were determined using a concentration
series of five tastants, sucrose ( sweet ), NaCl ( salty ), citric acid ( sour ), quinine hydrochloride ( bitter ) and
monosodium glutamate ( umami ). The taste solutions were diluted by half quarter logarithmic steps. The two patients
showed higher taste thresholds level than normal but the taste threshold results did not coincide with the patients appeal.
Further researches are needed for developing simple and precise diagnostic methods which can be applied to the patients with taste disorder.
