New studies for the treatment of xerostomia
Dry mouth can be a side effect of cancer treatments, since radiation can damage the salivary glands and impair the production of saliva.
US Dental and Craniofacial Surveys believe they can develop a way to repair and regenerate the salivary glands and resolve that problem once and for all. Dr. Matthew Hoffman leads the Institute's Matrix and Morphogenesis department and is senior researcher on this salivary gland regeneration project. He and his team of researchers are striving to identify cells, biological signals and other key factors for the development of embryonic salivary glands.

Constant episodes of nasal obstruction, often coupled with poor oral habits such as pacifier use, thumb sucking, absence of proper chewing, among others, often end up establishing an inadequate respiratory pattern, ie alone or preferably by mouth.
