At DENTAID, we have redesigned
the Xeros dentaid® website (www.xerosdentaid.es), offering specific information
about xerostomia and making it still easier for users to consult.
On the homepage under the
“What is xerostomia?” section, it specifies what this oral condition is, what
its signs and symptoms are, who suffers dry mouth, why it occurs and how this
problem affects the day-to-day life of those who suffer it, besides offering
solutions with products specifically formulated to treat this condition.
In general, xerostomia shows a prevalence of 20% to
40% and is most common in women, seniors and poly-medicated patients. This
prevalence is growing because of the large number of people who are currently
taking more than one medication, and it is therefore necessary to focus
attention on this group of patients.

A highly rated and interesting
section, both for professionals and people with dry mouth, the Xeros dentaid®
blog, “Stop Dry Mouth!” includes articles written by professionals from
different areas, such as oncologists, speech therapists or endocrinologists,
