Sialorrhea Treatment with Dr. Tafreshi

At Aliso Viejo Family Dental Group, we understand how debilitating sialorrhea, or drooling due to excessive saliva production, can be for patients. We offer Xeomin injections as an option for Sialorrhea Treatment in Aliso Viejo, CA. Xeomin injections work by relaxing the muscles responsible for saliva production, resulting in reduced saliva production and improved quality of life for patients.

Symptom Relief

What is Sialorrhea Treatment?

Sialorrhea, or excessive saliva production, can be a dangerous, distressing, and socially isolating condition that affects individuals with various medical conditions, including Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, stroke, and ALS. Excessive saliva production can lead to drooling, difficulty speaking and swallowing, and an increased risk of aspiration pneumonia. These symptoms can significantly impact quality of life, making simple daily tasks more challenging and affecting confidence and self-esteem.

Xeomin is an FDA-approved neurotoxin similar to Botox used to treat various conditions, including sialorrhea. It is injected into the affected muscles, causing them to relax and reduce the production of saliva. Xeomin has been shown to be effective in treating sialorrhea. Sialorrhea Treatment can improve speech and swallowing, reduce drooling, and decrease the risk of aspiration pneumonia. By improving these symptoms, Xeomin injections can help individuals regain their independence and improve their overall quality of life, while providing some sorely-needed relief from acute symptoms.

Alleviate Discomfort

What are the benefits of Sialorrhea Treatment?

One of the primary benefits of Xeomin injections is reducing excessive saliva production. This reduction in saliva production can help alleviate the discomfort and embarrassment associated with sialorrhea and can significantly improve a patient's quality of life. At our practice in Aliso Viejo Sialorrhea Treatment has been shown to provide long-lasting results, with many patients experiencing relief for several months following treatment.

In addition to being an effective treatment option, Xeomin injections are also minimally invasive, making them a convenient option for patients with busy schedules.

Patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure, with no downtime required. Overall, Xeomin injections offer a safe and efficient treatment option for patients with sialorrhea, relieving symptoms and improving their quality of life.
