What is The Best Treatment For Dry Mouth?
The Saliwell appliance made by Dr. Lindner will increase your salivary flow by sending electrical pulses of specific patterns that stimulate the nerves associated with salivary glands secretion. The stimulated nerves excite both the salivary glands directly to secrete more natural saliva, and stimulate the salivation center of the brain to further command the salivary glands to secrete more saliva.
How much improvement from Saliwell can be expected?
Patients will see a 20% increase in salivary flow after the 1st month of use. Then after 8 months of use, patients will see about a 40% increase in salivary flow. At that time many patients stop taking prescribed medications for dry mouth.

1, Sjogren's Syndrome
2, Head and Neck Radiotherapy
4, HIV Infection
5, Side Effects From Medications
