Artificial saliva is a product that is used by people who have too little of their own naturally occurring saliva, a condition known as dry mouth or xerostomia which results from an inadequate flow of saliva. Drying irritates the soft tissues in the mouth, which can make them inflamed and more susceptible to infection. The Severe dry mouth can promote the growth of harmful organisms. Without the cleansing and shielding effects of adequate saliva flow, tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease are more likely to occur. Constant dryness and the lack of protection provided by saliva contribute to bad breath. Dry mouth can also cause full dentures to become less comfortable because there is no thin film of saliva to help them adhere properly to oral tissues. Artificial saliva products are available in various forms, such as aerosols or liquids that are squirted into the mouth.

These glands may not work properly as the result of medications, aging, nerve damage, tobacco and alcohol consumption, recreational drug use and other health conditions. Another factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global artificial saliva market is the economic status of consumers in developing regions. As the per capita in several developing countries is low as compared to that of developed countries, the consumption of meagerly priced artificial saliva products is expected to rise among them. In such cases self-management becomes a must like in addition to the advice from the doctor, these tips help relieve dry mouth symptoms like intake of over-the-counter saliva substitutes, breathing through the nose or seeking treatment for snoring if it causes ones to breathe through the mouth during the night.
