Dry Mouth and Associated Complications

Cesar Migliorati, Professor and Chair

Saliva is critical for maintenance of good oral health. Key actions of saliva include: buffering to prevent an acidic oral environment which predisposes to dental demineralization and supply of calcium and phosphate, key substrates for dental remineralization, and protein secretion that enhances the local defenses against infection. Dry mouth can develop due to salivary gland hypofunction or due to pathological dysfunction of the glands. In the general population there are about 10% of individuals with dry mouth. In individuals over 65 years of age, about 20-25% complain of dry mouth. In nursing homes up to 50% of individuals can have dry mouth.
