August 2016- Dry Mouth

Don't ignore Dry Mouth

How common is dry mouth?

If you have dry mouth you are not alone. Dry mouth is a very common condition. It affects about 1 in every 4 adults.

 

What causes dry mouth?

Conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and depressio are often associated with dry mouth. However, medications are the number 1 cause. Both prescription and OTC medications can cause dry mouth. And taking more than three meds significantly increases your risk.

 

Can't I just sip water?

While sipping water may initially feel good, it doesn't lubricate and protect your mouth the way saliva does. Talk to your dental professional about dry mouth.
