A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Feb 24, 2024

The conundrum we are currently facing is that dry mouth - xerostomia - isn't just "dry mouth", it is a wide range of severity and accompanying symptoms. We cant treat everyone the same, and we are learning that the products from 20 years ago, maybe aren't keeping up with the symptoms manifesting in today's patient. What should we do?

In this episode we answer some key questions:

  • What is the prevalence of dry mouth in our patients; how often should we expect to see our patients presenting with them?
  • Is there an increase in prevalence or just better clinical detection?
  • What are the top reasons people experience xerostomic effects?
  • Do patients understand how much dry mouth they really have? 
  • Water vs Lipid based products for our patients - which is better?
  • How important is the role of the RDH in detection?
