SalivaMAX® is a Supersaturated Calcium Phosphate powder that when dissolved in water, creates a solution with a high concentration of electrolytes similar to that of natural saliva. SalivaMAX is an artificial saliva that is used to relieve acute and chronic symptoms of xerostomia (dry mouth) .
SalivaMAX contains high concentrations of calcium and phosphate ions to help the patient with low saliva flow supplement the missing elements needed for a healthy mouth.
Patients should dissolve one packet of SalivaMAX in one ounce of water (30 mL) then swish half of the solution in the mouth for 1 minute and spit out. Repeat with the remaining half of the solution. Patients should use the entire dose within 3 minutes of dissolving the powder in water.
There have been no reported side effects for supersaturated calcium phosphate rinses. SalivaMAX does contain sodium. Patients restricted to a low sodium diet should consult their physician before use.
A research study on patients with high grade xerostomia found that the average duration of the supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse lasted about 71 minutes per dose. Lower grades of xerostomia can be used less frequently because of the reduced need for the rinse. SalivaMAX may be used 2 – 10 times per day. Please consult your physician for your specific dosing requirements.
