It’s very likely that xerostomia — also known as dry mouth — affects many of your patients. The disease is estimated to occur in up to 65 percent of the population.*
Xerostomia is caused by more than 700 medications, both over-the-counter and prescription (and the more medications your patients take, the more likely they are to suffer from dry mouth).** It’s also caused by medical conditions like diabetes and Sjögren's syndrome, and by medical treatments like head and neck radiation therapy.
Some of your patients don’t know they have dry mouth. Others know but are suffering in silence. They might have tried home remedies or over-the-counter products, found the results unsatisfactory, and given up hope. As your patients’ oral care advocate, you have the power to talk to them about xerostomia and provide them with a new treatment solution that is effective, convenient and professional: 3M™ Xerostomia Relief Spray.
Awareness of dry mouth’s damaging effects is rising as the population ages and more patients seek relief for their symptoms. Dentists and hygienists have a unique opportunity to help patients who may be suffering in silence to understand and manage their xerostomia.
