Dry Mouth (xerostomia)

Dry mouth is not only uncomfortable but it can be a large factor for many oral health issues.  Dry mouth can be a result of certain medications or disease.  Problems start arising because of the absence of adequate saliva to cleanse the teeth surfaces.  As a result, plaque sticks even more leading to a much higher risk and incidence of cavities.  There are certain dental products to help with dry mouth. If you feel that your mouth is excessively dry, please do not hesitate to give us a call and schedule an appointment.
