CE Supporter: Sunstar   Expiration Date: 2/11/24

Well over 500 prescription and non-prescription medications have xerostomic side effects, which are compounded when these medications are used concomitantly, as is often the case for our medically complex patients. In addition, little attention is sometimes given to those systemic diseases which contribute to the development of xerostomia, and the exacerbation of its complications. This CE webinar will provide participants with an overview of xerostomia, medications used in its management and the impact of both the disease and its treatment on dental therapy. Special emphasis will be given to vaping and the use of cannabis and their effects on producing and/or exacerbating dry mouth.

During this CE webinar, we will
• Describe xerostomia and explain its various etiologies
• Describe the oral and non-oral complications associated with xerostomia
• Identify the prescription and non-prescription medications that have xerostomic side effects
• Identify the systemic diseases which may contribute to the development of xerostomia
• Describe the pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management of xerostomia
• Explain the xerostomic effects of vaping and the use of cannabis   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
