Dry Mouth - What To Do
The significant issue with having a dry mouth is the fact that saliva is no longer performing its intended function. Why? Because there's less of it.
As an aging population, we all experience this when we have to start taking different medications for our health. One of the primary side effects of medications is drying out our mouths. When saliva is no longer present in sufficient quantities, we often witness a significant increase in cavities in our teeth. This can also be related to conditions like Sjogren's syndrome, which includes dry eyes and dry mouth.
If you're experiencing this, it's advisable to discuss it with your GP. If you have more questions about this topic and its treatments, please don't hesitate to contact our office.
