Abstract

Patients who have received irradiation therapy on the head and neck area are known to suffer from reduced saliva flow and may therefore use acidic candies to relieve symptoms of dry mouth. However, such acidic candies have erosive potential even among healthy individuals. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to determine if calcium-modified acidic candies have reduced erosive potential in irradiated cancer patients.
