The human body is composed of up to 65% water, and its importance in oral and overall health cannot be understated. From skin, to the oral cavity, brain and bone, hydration is key to optimal health and wellness. Xerostomia is increasingly present in our patient populations for reasons ranging from popular diets and Cannabis use, to increased reliance on medications and age. Let’s talk about Cannabis. There has been rapid change in recent years in both public opinion and reported science concerning cannabis use and its effects. In fact, more than half of the states have legislated some form of legalized medical marijuana, and recreational legality is growing by the day. The oral health professional will increasingly treat individuals who freely use cannabis in all its forms. We need to know- What are its effects on xerostomia and the oral cavity? This fast-paced course will address these issues and provide knowledge we can use to educate and empower our patients in optimal oral hydration and health.
