Introduction: The feeling of dry mouth accompanied by burning sensation is a chronic symptom that occurs most often in adults who have some systemic diseases, and the mucous membrane of the oral cavity shows a clinically healthy appearance.
Material and methods: 30 subjects (24 women and 6 men), aged 50 to 60 years, participated in the study. Subjects reported symptoms of dry mouth, which were accompanied by burning sensation. The anamnestic procedure determined that these were secondary symptoms, ie the presence of systemic diseases that were treated with drug therapy was established in the subjects.The vast majority of subjects stated that they suffer from high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as that they are exposed to stress. The first step in reducing the feeling of dryness is to change the hygienic-dietary regime. Toothpastes containing sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) as well as mouthwashes (alcohol-based mouthwaters are excluded) for seven to ten days are excluded from the hygiene regime. In this study we used Enzycal toothpaste for seven to ten days. The control group consisted of 30 subjects, with the same subjective problems, in whom the hygienic-dietary regime was not changed. The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) scale monitored the effectiveness of this toothpaste in reducing feelings of dry mouth, such as burning sensation.
Results: The obtained results show that the use of sodium lauryl sulfate free toothpaste significantly alleviates the feeling of dry mouth, as well as the symptoms of burning sensation in the area of the oral cavity.
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, sodium lauryl sulfate free toothpaste can be recommended for maintaining oral hygiene.
