How Do you Treat Xerostomia?

How Do you Treat Xerostomia?

Xerostomia is an abnormal dryness of the mucous membranes in the mouth, due to a reduction of the flow or change in the composition of saliva. The main causes are medical treatment, polymedication and diseases. Xerostomia generates an increase of pathogenic bacteria in a pathogenic biofilm, which decreases the oral pH. The consequences of Xerostomia for the oral health are serious : oral lesions, dental caries, gingivits and periodontal disease, candidiasis and halitosis to name a few. It can also contribute to poor nutrition and psychological discomfort.
