A randomised controlled pilot trial of two interventions to manage dry mouth in pre-operative elective surgical patients

Background The case of Dry mouth is a typical perioperative patient complaint. Dry mouth is one of several treatments that are safe in other settings. Interventions to Handle Dry Mouth Water and a saliva substitute can be used to reduce mouth dryness. Methods A single blind, pilot randomised controlled trial of 101 pre-operative elective surgical patients who were randomly assigned to water or saliva substitutes at a tertiary, university hospital. The dry mouth was judged on a 100 mm graphical analogue scale and a 5-point Likert score. For saliva substitute, the difference in VAS post intervention was u2212 11. 2 mm for water and u2212 12. 7 mm for saliva substitute. The percentage of patients who had improved dry mouth went from 52% for water to 62% for a saliva substitute.

Effects of a Novel Formulation on Oral Biofilm, pH Buffering, and Gingival Health in Patients with Dry Mouth

The results of a novel test agent versus a control agent on dry mouth, plaque, salivary pH, and buffering capacity, gingival health, and tooth sensitivity are among patients with dry mouth. In this cross-over investigation, ten participants with dry mouth analysis and monitoring dry mouth operations, as well as no dry mouth interventions in a random sequence were included in this cross-over research. The results of a novel dry mouth therapy are similar to those of an existing OTC treatment and are much better than no intervention.

Evaluation of Efficacy of an Herbal Compound on Dry Mouth in Patients With Head and Neck Cancers

Dry mouth is a common complication of radiotherapy for head and neck cancers. This research compared the effectiveness of an herbal powder containing Malva sylvestris and Alcea digitata with artificial saliva for relieving the symptoms of dry mouth in head and neck cancer patients with artificial saliva. The herbal group made a significant difference between the dry mouth grade before and after intervention, but no change was made in the Hypozalix group's grade of dry mouth. This report supports the effectiveness of the herbal compound for treating symptoms of dry mouth in head and neck cancer patients.

Signs of oral dryness in relation to salivary flow rate, pH, buffering capacity and dry mouth complaints

Abstract Background This research was designed to determine the signs of oral dryness in relation to various salivary conditions, as well as correlate subjective reports of oral dryness with salivary flow rate. Low resting flow rate was found by the dry lip, but pH and buffering capacity did not have any significant relationship to the dry lip. Conclusions The finding that the boosted salivary flow rate in people suffering from dry mouth is of ubvious clinical importance, since the reduction is expected to be mimicted in affecting various salivary functions.

The effect of demographic characteristics on the relationship between smoking and dry mouth in Iran: a cross-sectional, case-control study

OBJECTIVES The effect of age, sex, and other demographic variables on the relationship between smoking and dry mouth is uncertain. METHODS This case-control research included 5,640 randomly selected participants from the second phase of the Kerman Coronary Artery Disease Risk Factors Study, which featured 10,000 participants from 2014 to 2018. Each participant completed a six-item Fox questionnaire to determine dry mouth as a dependent variable. Both sexes and smoking users were more likely to have dry mouth in all ages and all sexes. The risk of having dry mouth as males aged, as males became older, increased more quickly than among female smokers. In addition, female smokers were more likely to have dry mouth than male smokers. CONCLUSIONS The possibility of dry mouth among daily smokers depended on age and sex.

Aloe vera for Dry Mouth Denture Patients – Palliative Therapy

Denture-wearing patients' discomfort is relieved by inadequate saliva, which reduces denture retention. The ability of saliva to wet the tissue surface is one of the most important features for oral comfort and stable denture in dry mouth patients. Aim: This review was done to determine and compare the wetting ability of both therapeutic Aloe vera saliva substitute and commercially available Aqwet saliva substitutes on heatpolymerized acrylic resin. Materials and Methods: Aloe vera liquid and Aqwet saliva substitutes were compared in terms of their wetting ability. Group I's mean ascending angle and receding angle were smaller than Group II's. Group I's mean angle of hysteresis was higher than Group II. Conclusion: The wetting ability of Group I saliva substitute was found to be higher than that of Group II on heat-polymerized acrylic resin, which was found to be much better than Group II.

Evaluate five different diagnostic tests for dry mouth assessment in geriatric residents in long-term institutions in Taiwan

Abstract Background Residents in long-term care facilities need care to properly address dry mouth. To help care professionals in determining dry mouth among residents, simple and comprehensible dry mouth indices must be developed. A repetitive saliva swallowing test was used to determine the characteristics of the residents, state of oral health care, self-perceived ability to chew food, Taiwanese short-form of the Oral Health Impact Profile, self-perceived levels of dry mouth, oral moisture testing, and a repeated saliva swallowing test.

Potential Application of Ixeris dentata in the Prevention and Treatment of Aging-Induced Dry Mouth

In our research, we used young and old SD rats. The salivary flow rate relative to the submandibular gland mass was not affected by IXD extract treatment, according to the researchers. With IXD therapy, the production of high molecular weight complexes, reduced expression of an ER chaperone, and increased ER stress in elderly rats was limited, and salivary secretions from the aged submandibular glands became more evident. These are the first reports to show that an IXD extract could help with aging-associated oral dryness by regulating the ER environment.
