Xerostomia Bother Index:
Some of our healthcare professional clients asked us to produce a tool to help assess and monitor a patient’s symptoms. The result was the Xerostomia Bother Index, an easy to use, patient led questionnaire that helps patients to score the severity of their symptoms and possibly identify areas of further investigation and clinical intervention. You can download the sheet from here Xerostomia Bother Index, but is also available as a tear off A4 pad via the office. Contact us via this form to request a copy. Contact form

We believe that best practise should be based, not only on personal experience, but also evidence base. In terms of Dry Mouth there are not masses of clinical papers but, unlike most other products, A.S Saliva Orthana has featured in some peer reviewed publications. The below animations show a few of their findings.
