Huge thanks to 3M for Sponsoring this week’s episode and giving us a cool spot to record live at CDA!This week's product spotlight was developed to help patients who suffer from xerostomia.

Irene wrote a cool scientific article in the Dental Economics Magazine in the November Issue that talks all about early identification of dry mouth and salivary gland dysfunction. 

3M offers a suite of products to tackle xerostomia from multiple angles. First, there is the 3M Xerostomia Relief Spray, which is a lipid-based solution designed to limit water loss, moisten, and lubricate the entire oral cavity.

This is a prescription product that can be dispensed directly out of the office or your doctor can write a prescription and send it directly to a specialty pharmacy. Many patients like to use Theramints, which are 100% xylitol-sweetened mints to stimulate their saliva throughout the day.

I strongly recommend high-risk patients have an in-office varnish with Vanish 5% sodium fluoride white varnish can be used every 3 to 6 months. Helps with sensitivity relief by releasing fluoride, calcium and phosphate for up to 24 hours.

 Lastly send a patient home with Clinpro 5000, a high-fluoride toothpaste, containing their patented functionalized tri-calcium phosphate. This can be prescribed for patients to use at least once a day for caries prevention.
