Dry Mouth Treatment


Dry mouth is a condition in which the mouth feels dry or sticky because there isn’t enough saliva. You may hear dentists use the term xerostomia, which is the medical term for dry mouth. The condition can be a side effect of medications or other medical conditions, such as the autoimmune disease Sjogren’s syndrome. Dry mouth puts you at risk for dental health problems because saliva washes away food particles & bacteria & helps distribute tooth-strengthening minerals. If you are experiencing dry mouth on a regular basis, especially if drinking water doesn’t seem to help, please let us know. We can recommend treatments for dry mouth, such as medicated mouth rinses.
