Get the Facts and Treat Chronic Dry Mouth
Understanding And Managing Chronic Dry Mouth
Dry mouth is a symptom of Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease affecting four million Americans. Of them, many are women over the age of 40.
The mouth is considered a gateway to the body and dental health, which can in turn affect overall health and wellness. NeutraSal is an advanced electrolyte solution that mimics natural saliva and contains electrolytes such as calcium, phosphate, sodium, bicarbonate, and chloride, which are necessary for a healthy, functioning mouth.
NeutraSal is designed to replace the normal ionic and pH balance in the mouth to help create a less acidic environment. Join Access Health host Ereka Vetrini as she welcomes Dr. Susan Cutler of OraPharma to discuss options for soothing the symptoms of chronic dry mouth.
