Does your mouth feel dry when you wake up or even during the day?
Dry mouth can be uncomfortable and can also cause bad breath. But you don’t have to endure it for long. Your dental team can help you manage to treat it.
Dryness of the mouth or xerostomia is caused by the lack of saliva in the mouth. Saliva is important as it helps neutralize acids in the mouth, control bacterial growth, and flush down food debris. Saliva also helps make eating and chewing enjoyable experiences.
Your Oral Health
When you have dry mouth, you become more vulnerable to tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and mouth ulcers. Saliva helps keep the mouth clean and also aids in food digestion.
How to Prevent Dry Mouth
The treatment for dry mouth depends on its cause. If you feel you have this condition, talk to your doctors. The tips listed above may help relieve dryness, but they won’t resolve it for good.
