Xerostomia can be a persistent and uncomfortable condition that affects individuals of various age groups and backgrounds. It can result from a variety of factors, including medications, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices such as vaping or marijuana use. Dry mouth can lead to a range of oral health issues, including cavities, gum disease, and difficulties in speaking and swallowing.
The new lipid-based technology mentioned in your statement could be a reference to products like lipid-based moisturizing oral sprays or mouthwashes that are designed to provide longer-lasting relief for dry mouth symptoms compared to traditional water-based solutions. This NEW Lipid-based product aims to mimic the natural protective layer of saliva in the mouth, helping to lock in moisture and provide relief from the discomfort of dry mouth.
In this interactive webinar, you will:
- Review the statistics of xerostomia
- Compare product formulations to make evidence-based decisions for xerostomia relief
- Review how lipid-based formulations interact with salvia
