Dry Mouth is a common side effect of radiation or chemotherapy for cancer patients. Approximately 90-100% of head and neck cancer patients treated with radiation will develop oral complications, with Dry Mouth being the most common. It is important to take steps before and during treatment to protect against the discomfort and problems associated with Dry Mouth.
Dry Mouth can develop into mucositis if left untreated. It is a debilitating complication of cancer treatments and can lead to several problems, including pain, the inability to eat, and an increased risk of infection due to open mouth sores.
Patients have often used “saliva substitutes” as part of the prevention and treatment of cancer-related dry mouth. Aquoral can be an important addition to your Dry Mouth strategy, helping to prevent mucositis and positively impacting a patient’s quality of life while going through cancer treatment.
Here are a few additional steps you can take to help moisturize and protect your mouth during treatment:
Lipid-based spray lubricates and provides a protective shield that helps the oral mucosa retain moisture
Helps prevent mucosal damage & tooth decay while improving the ability to chew, taste, swallow, and speak
Small size fits in a pocket or purse; no need for mixing or frequent rinsing as with water-based formulations

Over-the-counter Dry Mouth products are often sold in large bottles due to the frequency of use. Prescription supersaturated calcium phosphate rinses come in foil packets which need to be mixed in a large quantity of water before use.
Aquoral comes in two convenient 10 mL spray bottles that easily fit in a pocket, purse, or on a night table.
Many non-prescription Dry Mouth treatments and prescription supersaturated calcium phosphate rinses require rinsing and spitting out and should not be swallowed.
Aquoral is a discreet, easy-to-use spray.
Aquoral’s formulation provides long-lasting relief. Finally, a solution that lubricates AND forms a protective layer that keeps moisture in the oral cavity.

Most saliva substitutes hydrate and lubricate the oral mucosa providing temporary relief of Dry Mouth.
Aquoral’s OGT formulation creates a protective shield which, when used alone or combined with other Dry Mouth treatments, can lock in moisture, and enhance effectiveness.
Dry Mouth is a more serious medical condition than its name would suggest. In most cases, patients’ daily lives and oral health can be significantly compromised if their Dry Mouth is not discovered early and managed effectively. It can be caused or exacerbated by more than 700 medications, both over-the-counter and prescription. Patients with certain health conditions or medical treatments, such as Sjögren’s disease or head and neck cancer therapy often experience Dry Mouth.
Despite being a common medical condition, the signs and symptoms may go unnoticed in a routine oral exam. It has been reported that the incidence of Dry Mouth in the general population is as high as 65 percent.
