Saliva is a very important factor in keeping your mouth healthy and comfortable. Many medications, medical conditions, past or present cancer therapy, and aging can affect the natural flow of saliva. Lack of normal salivary flow can lead to the following:

  • Dental decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Bad breath
  • Mouth or lip sores
  • Altered taste
  • Difficulty swallowing

Based on the cause of your dry mouth, we can work on solutions for the condition and most importantly work to prevent the above results of xerostomia.

While a dry mouth may not seem like a big problem, the saliva in your mouth plays an important role in your health. It breaks down food particles, works to protect your tooth enamel, and makes it possible for you to chew and swallow. A dry mouth increases your risk of developing tooth decay and other problems, and it may prevent you from getting necessary nutrients. Common symptoms of dry mouth, or xerostomia, include:

  • Dry, sticky feelings in the mouth and throat
  • Difficulty in chewing, swallowing or tasting
  • A burning feeling in the mouth
  • Cracked lips
  • A dry, rough tongue
  • Infection in the mouth
  • Persistent halitosis (bad breath)

Some of the solutions our dentists may recommend to help you manage dry mouth while we find a long-term solution include:

  • Sipping water or sugarless drinks frequently
  • Avoiding drinks containing caffeine
  • Chewing sugarless gum or sucking on sugarless candy to stimulate saliva flow
  • Avoiding tobacco products or alcohol
  • Using a humidifier at night
  • Taking special care to keep your mouth healthy with good oral hygiene
