Help for Dry Mouth Sufferers

Does your mouth seem uncomfortably dry? Or have you actually been diagnosed with dry mouth (as a side effect of certain types of medication or radiation therapy for cancer)?

Either way, here’s what you need to know about your condition:

  • A dry mouth is not only uncomfortable, it’s a cavity-prone environment. Normal saliva flow is the body’s natural way of flushing plaque between brushings.
  • Dry mouth can result from normal aging, some medications, or simply dehydration. All our patients should be drinking at least six to eight glasses of water daily. Simple and calorie-free!
  • If you’re undergoing (or about to undergo) radiation therapy, you should realize this treatment can reduce saliva flow. It’s a good idea to make an appointment with us as well. There are lots of things we can do to help you maintain a moist, comfortable, cavity-free mouth during your treatment and after.
