Sažetak
Objectives: Xerostomia or dry mouth is a subjective sensation of oral dryness. Xerostomia may have many causes, including medications, Sjoegren´s syndrome, head and neck radiotherapy, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus and psychological factors but drug-induced xerostomia is the most common. Dry mouth treatment consists of salivary stimulation and/or salivary substitutes. Many different artificial salivas are available on the market. The aim of the present study was to compare the efficiency of three different saliva substitutes on quality of life in patients with xerostomia. Methods: A total of 60 patients with xerostomia were divided into three groups. In the first group patients were using dental spray based on thermal springwater, in the second group patients were using mouthwash containing hydroxyethylcellulose, in the third group patients were using marshmallow root. Therapy lasted for two weeks. Quality of life was measured by Croatian version of Oral Health Impact Profile 14 questionnare and visual analog scale was used to determine the intensity of dry mouth before and after therapy. Results: Dental spray based on thermal springwater has shown the highest effect on quality of life in patients with xerostomia. Intensity of dry mouth was lower after the therapy no matter which salivary substitute patients used. Conclusions: We can recommend using all three saliva substitutes for decreasing the intensity of dry mouth. Dental spray based on thermal springwater has shown the best result for both decreasing the intensity of dry mouth symptoms as well as improvement in quality of life.
