What Causes Dry Mouth?

If you experience dry mouth it is known as xerostomia. It happens when you have a reduced flow of saliva. Sufficient amount of saliva is needed in the mouth to wash away food debris and reduce plaque by neutralizing the acids that plaque produces.

Gingivitis, gum disease, and severe tooth decay often occur if dry mouth is left untreated. Other common problems linked to dry mouth are, difficulty speaking, hoarseness, persistent sore throat, problems with speaking, problems with swallowing, burning sensation in the mouth, and dry nasal passages.

If you feel you are experiencing dry mouth call our office to make an appointment.

Great service, easy to get an appointment, staff was very informative on what work was being done and if I had pain during the procedure. They seem to have very new equipment which makes procedures faster and more effective than other offices in town.
