Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients with any form of sialadenitis should be educated as to the value of hydration and excellent oral hygiene. This lessens the severity of the attacks and prevents dental complications. Patients with sialadenosis should be educated regarding the mechanism of their underlying pathology and methods of maintaining control over them.

  • For excellent patient education resources, visit eMedicineHealth's Oral Health Center.
