Abstract :

Geriatric patients increase the risk of acquiring various systemic illnesses such as hyposalivation and xerostomia. Proper cudchewing prevents gastric, and malnutrition. For the geriatric patient with head and neck cancer, radiation treatment attack the malignant cells but also healthy cells, oral and perioral tissues, presenting oral lesions during and after radiation, causing Mucositis, Xerostomia, periodontitis diminishing the patient’s quality of life. In order to keep both groups of patients, whether healthy or in radiotherapy tratment, the proper oral health status, the use of mouthwashes based on Quercus ilex prevent and reduce the incidence of periodontal disease, hyposalivation and xerostomia. The clinical results show that salivary pH in both groups of elderly postoperative treatment with mouthwash on Quercus ilex passed of acid to neutral, with respect to the salivary flow in healthy older adults increase for 0.85ml/m to 0.92 ml/m and the patients with pathology added was for 0.45 ml and/m to 0.66 ml/m, giving them the chance to improve their functionality of the stomatognathic system.
