Frequently Asked Questions
What is SalivaMAX?
SalivaMAX is intended to moisten, lubricate, and clean the oral cavity including the mucosa of the mouth, tongue, and throat. SalivaMAX may be used as part of an oral hygiene program for patients with dry mouth.
When is SalivaMAX right for me?
SalivaMAX™ is indicated for dryness of the mouth or throat (hyposalivation, xerostomia, mucositis), regardless of the cause and regardless of whether the condition is temporary or permanent. Relief of dryness of the oral mucosa in these conditions is associated with an amelioration of pain.
SalivaMAX™ is also indicated as an adjunct to standard oral care in treating the mucositis that may be caused by radiation or high dose chemotherapy.
SalivaMAX™ may be used for the relief of dryness of the oral mucosa when hyposalivation results from the following: pre/post surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, infection or dysfunction of the salivary glands, inflammation of the mouth or throat, fever, emotional factors such as fear or anxiety, obstruction of the salivary ducts, Bell’s Palsy, and Sjogren’s syndrome. SalivaMAX™ is also indicated for dryness of the oral mucosa due to drugs such as antihistamines, atropine, or other anticholinergeic agents that suppress salivary secretion.
SalivaMAX™ may be used as part of an oral hygiene program for patients with dry mouth. SalivaMAX™ provides intensive hygiene of the oral cavity, and may be used to help relieve bad taste, relieve offensive nasal discharge, and crusting.

How do patients use SalivaMAX?
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.
How do patients use Orapeutic?
Remove the syringe cap and attach the curved tip. Use the curved tip to apply the gel directly onto the affected site in the mouth. Apply enough to cover the lesions or wound site and allow to remain in place as long as possible without disturbing with the tongue or finger. Orapeutic Gel will slowly dissolve. Apply again as often as needed for pain.
Does SalivaMAX or Orapeutic have side effects?
There have been no reported side effects. SalivaMAX does contain sodium. Patients restricted to a low sodium diet should consult their physician before use. Orapeutic contains cinnamon and should not be used by anyone with reported to suspected hypersensitivity to any of it's ingredients.
What do I do if I accidentally swallow SalivaMAX or Orapeutic?
No adverse effects are expected if either SalivaMAX or Orapeutic is swallowed accidentally.
How long does SalivaMAX work and how often should I use it?
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.
What clinical studies do you have?
There are many clinical studies on the benefits of supersaturated calcium phosphate rinses. SalivaMAX is currently participating in several additional studies and we hope to distribute that data shortly.
