GUM® Hydral® Toothpaste
Xerostomia, the medical term used for dry mouth, is common. It is believed to affect 25% of the population, especially women, and more than 50% of elderly people. Dry mouth results from an inadequate flow of saliva (hyposalivation) that may even cease completely in extreme cases. Rather than a specific disorder, dry mouth is a symptom that can be triggered by one or several underlying causes which can be linked to medications, chronic diseases, smoking, aging, or many other factors. GUM® Hydral® Toothpaste is very gentle and ideal for daily care of the delicate oral cavity and dry mucosa. It is particularly suitable for patients with a fragile mouth, especially elderly people.
