Xerostomia is the academic term for what you and I call dry mouth. It is,
quite simply, the feeling you have when there is little to no saliva in your
mouth. You can probably recall times in your life when you were particularly
anxious, dehydrated or otherwise exhausted and had that awful dry feeling.
Dry mouth can come as a result of certain medications, health conditions or
from aging. Several prescription drugs are available to treat or prevent
Xerostomia, if it is a persistent problem that threatens your overall dental
hygiene. Saliva is important to the health of your teeth and any long-term
absence of it can cause a dramatic increase in cavities. Sipping sugarless
fluids or chewing gum can bring back the saliva in your mouth and can also
help with that dry mouth feeling.
If you have frequent dry mouth or Xerostomia, contact us today so that we can
help you find the best solution to your dry mouth.
