Abstract

This webinar will explore the issue of Xerostomia, which is defined as the persistent or daily symptom of dry mouth, and has been estimated to affect greater than 10% of the adult population in the United States. The prevalence increases to about 25% in older persons (greater than 60 years of age) and to over 40% in institutionalized elders. As the population ages, xerostomia is becoming a greater issue and its successful treatment often requires a multimodal approach.
