ROYAL COLLEGE OF SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY 11th & 12th September 2012, Manchester

CCMed Ltd took the battle against dry mouth to Manchester for the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapy two day conference. Amongst the delegates was The Lord Mayor of Manchester who showed an interest in the subject of Xerostomia at the CCMed stand.

CCMed stand Many speech and language therapists found dry mouth to be a common complaint affecting a wide variety of their patients and attention focused upon the difficulties many of these patients faced.

Dry mouth can be caused by many factors including:

  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Elderly
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Dysphasia
  • Neurology
  • Mental health

Therapists were keen to get their hands on The Challacombe Scale to help diagnose patients with dry mouth and be able to monitor their progress after treatment has started.

Speech and language therapists were delighted to learn that after diagnosis, fast and effective relief from dry mouth was easily available. The A.S Saliva Orthana products are pH neutral so will not sting or irritate already sore mouths, and the non sticky formulation makes it even more effective than alternatives. Most importantly Speech and Language Therapists took special care to learn how to advise their patients to correctly apply A.S Saliva Orthana. When spraying inside the mouth a patient must aim for where the salivary glands exit, this would include; under the tongue, each cheek and into the palate to make sure the full benefit of using A.S Saliva Orthana is received. Many speech and language therapists were excited to learn that in addition to the A.S Saliva Orthana liquid spray, a gel will soon be released in the U.K and pleased to be amongst the first to hear about it.
