A New Class of Treatment
SalivaMAX® is a supersaturated calcium phosphate powder that when dissolved in water, creates a solution with a high concentration of electrolytes similar to that of natural saliva. SalivaMAX is an artificial saliva that is used to relieve acute and chronic symptoms of xerostomia. Supersaturated calcium phosphate rinses have been clinically proven to reduce the symptoms of xerostomia (dry mouth) due to medications, dysfunction of the salivary glands, Sjögren’s syndrome, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment.
There have been no reported side effects for supersaturated calcium phosphate rinses. SalivaMAX does contain sodium; patients restricted to a low sodium diet should consult their physician before use.
Indications For Use
- SalivaMAX is indicated for dryness of the mouth or throat (hyposalivation, xerostomia, mucositis), regardless of the cause and regardless of whether the condition is temporary or permanent. Relief of dryness of the oral mucosa in these conditions is associated with an amelioration of pain.
- SalivaMAX is also indicated as an adjunct to standard oral care in treating the mucositis that may be caused by radiation or high dose chemotherapy.
- SalivaMAX may be used for the relief of dryness of the oral mucosa when hyposalivation results from the following: pre/post surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, infection or dysfunction of the salivary glands, inflammation of the mouth or throat, fever, emotional factors such as fear or anxiety, obstruction of the salivary ducts, Bell’s Palsy, and Sjogren’s syndrome. SalivaMAX is also indicated for dryness of the oral mucosa due to drugs such as antihistamines, atropine, or other anticholinergeic agents that suppress salivary secretion.
- SalivaMAX may be used as part of an oral hygiene program for patients with dry mouth. SalivaMAX provides intensive hygiene of the oral cavity, and may be used to help relieve bad taste, relieve offensive nasal discharge, and crusting.
