Product Description

Dry mouth can be due to certain health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, or due to autoimmune diseases. Snoring and breathing with your mouth open also can contribute to dry mouth. Dry mouth, or xerostomia (zeer-o-STOE-me-uh), refers to a condition in which the salivary glands in the mouth do not make enough saliva to keep the mouth wet. Decreased saliva and dry mouth can range from being merely a nuisance to something that has a major impact on one’s general health and the health of teeth/ gums, as well as appetite and the enjoyment of food. A customized therapy-based program can prove beneficial in assisting adults with Alzheimer’s in relieving dryness or a feeling of stickiness in the mouth, saliva that appears thick and stringy, bad breath, difficulty chewing, speaking, and swallowing, dry or sore throat and hoarseness, dry or grooved tongue and a changed sense of taste. When this program is followed, at the recommended frequency, there will be an optimal achievement level of 100%.
