Xerostomia, jointed to local or general diseases or to drug therapy, is a very heavy problem for complete denture patients. Lack of saliva produces changes in the oral mucose membrane and instability of the complete denture. The Authors suggest a change in the complete denture consisting in small tanks full of solution making up for the lack of saliva. The new method proved to be good, easy to make, and very cheap.
