An interdisciplinary textbook on dry mouth, Xerostomia: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Managing Dry Mouth provides an overview of xerostomia for physicians, dentists, nurses, speech-language pathologists, and otolaryngologists who encounter the condition in their practice.

Xerostomia is a common condition, yet only one in seven cases are referred to a speech-language pathologist or otolaryngologist for treatment. Featuring contributions from speech-language pathologists, otolaryngologists, dentists, oral pathologists, and nurses, the text's interdisciplinary approach and evidence-based framework provides practitioners with an awareness and understanding of xerostomia that will improve interprofessional coordination and enhance patient care.

With a robust accompanying website including patient education resources, Xerostomia addresses the following topics:

An otolaryngologist's view of xerostomia, including causes, symptoms, evaluation, and treatment
Patient perspectives of living with xerostomia, including quality of life measures and new research findings
Effect of xerostomia on dental and oral health
Voice disorders associated with xerostomia
Impact of xerostomia on swallowing
The science of saliva, including composition and production

Xerostomia: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Managing Dry Mouth provides indispensable information for general practitioners, internists, dentists, nurses, otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech-language pathology students, as well as any health care practitioners who encounter patients with xerostomia.
