Calcium Phosphate Mouth Rinse/Caphosol

Oral rinses containing calcium and phosphate have been studied in patients with cancer for effects on oral mucositis.

Caphosol is a calcium phosphate solution resembling human saliva that is intended to replace the normal ionic and pH balance in the oral cavity. It has been used as a mouth rinse to moisten, lubricate, and clean the oral mucosa, tongue, and throat. Caphosol has been evaluated for mucositis.
