Counting the ways to tackle xerostomia
Curaprox claims Xerostom is the ideal way to tackle xerostomia (dry mouth).
Made from a natural ingredients, Xerostom relieves dryness, soothes irritation and the anti-bacterial properties protect the mouth from bacterial plaque.
Potentially affecting up to 40% of the population, xerostomia can cause patients difficulty in speaking and eating, as well as a dramatic rise in the amount of cavities, as the protective effect of the saliva’s remineralisation of the enamel is lacking.
Additionally, the mucosa and periodontal tissue in the mouth is more prone to infection, as the antibacterial properties of saliva are no longer present.
A clinical study into the effectiveness of Xerostrom also found that used daily for seven days, patients reported an increase in unstimulated salivary flow rates of up a 200% .
Xerostom is available in a range of products:
• Mouth spray
• Dental gum
• Saliva substitute
