(ACHX) group, a xylitol gum (X) group, or a no-gum (N) group. Subjects in the gum groups chewed two pellets for 15 minutes twice daily for 12 months.Primary outcome measures were salivary flow rate, denture debris score, prevalence of angular cheilitis, and denture stomatitis; secondary outcome measures were salivary levels of caries-associated microorganisms. A single examiner, who was blinded to group allocation, made all measurements at baseline before gum usage and at subsequent examinations (...) significantly increased (P <.05) in the X and N groups. Denture debris status was significantly lower in the ACHX and X groups than at baseline or in the N group (P <.01). The reductions of 91% and 75% in denture stomatitis and angular cheilitis prevalence, respectively, that occurred in the ACHX group were significantly greater (P <.01) than the reductions in the X group (denture stomatitis 62%, angular cheilitis 43%). Prevalence of denture stomatitis and angular cheilitis were not significantly changed

Their ‘evidence-based answer’ stated: “Cheilitis is a broad term (...) that describes inflammation of the lip surface characterized by dry scaling and fissuring. Specific types are atopic, angular, granulomatous, and actinic. Angular cheilitis is commonly seen in primary care settings, and it specifically refers to cheilitis that radiates from the commissures or corners of the mouth.
