Abstract


It is obvious that our society is aging and the number of patients with dry mouth will increase in the future. In my opinion, if the dentists working at the local dental clinic pay a little more attention to these patients, they can perform a simple medical history check and the measurement of saliva secretion rate, and may make a clinical diagnosis for dry mouth. Dry mouth patients related to systemic diseases (especially Sjogren's syndrome) and to drug use need to be referred to a physician, and sialogogue for responders and artificial saliva for non-responders should be considered preferentially. We should pay attention to dry mouth-related diseases such as halitosis, and halitosis can be effectively treated by improving oral hygiene including tongue brushing and using gargle solution. Aging cannot be avoided. Now is the time for all dentists to pay attention to the dry mouth that elderly patients may be experiencing.
