“Hey, Spit Happens!”: Medication-Induced Xerostomia and Winning Patient Care Planning Strategies

Well over 500 prescription and non-prescription medications have xerostomic
side effects which are compounded when these medications are used
concomitantly as is often the case for the medically complex patients .
Unfortunately, little attention is given to the systemic diseases which
contribute to the development of xerostomia, and the exacerbation of its
complications. This program will provide participants with an overview of
xerostomia, medications used in its management and the impact of both the
disease and its treatment on dental therapy. Special emphasis will be given
to patients using cannabis and developing patient management strategies and
techniques essential for successful treatment planning.
