According to Dr. Brian Novy, an assistant professor of restorative dentistry at Loma Linda University, you can ask a pharmacist to make these Dry Mouth Lollipops. The pharmacy may need a prescription…and thanks to a friend who heard Dr. Novy’s presentation at the Pacific Dental Conference, I’ve got the recipe to share with you!
5mg Pilocarpine Hydrochloride in a Xylitol & Sorbitol base
(The two ingredients combined help combat decay.)
Add the flavor you like: lemon, watermelon…
Directions: Suck on this pop for 3-5 secs. If a couple of sucks stimulate enough saliva then swish the saliva between the teeth.
If I weren’t speaking at the Pacific Dental Conference at the same time giving my presentation on Oral Cancer, I would have enjoyed hearing Dr. Brian Novy’s talk. He has a reputation of presenting good content while engaging the audience with humor.
Let me know if you try it and it works for you. Happy Lollipopping!
