Why You Should Pay Attention to Dry Mouth – Here’s the Problems it Can Cause

What causes dry mouth?

Are you finding that you sometimes have a dry mouth? Sure, being nervous or stressed can cause your mouth to go dry for a little while. But if you find you’re frequently suffering from a dry mouth, you should pay attention to this symptom and contact us so we can help you resolve it. Here’s why it’s so important.

Saliva is your body’s way of keeping your mouth and even your teeth healthy. Saliva is actually mildly antibacterial. A steady wash of saliva helps keep the bacteria in your mouth at a healthy level which helps prevent cavities or gum disease. Saliva is also important in the digestion of your food. It’s easier to chew and digest both when your flow of saliva is normal.

What Causes Dry Mouth

There are actually many causes of dry mouth:

  • Cancer treatments (radiation or chemotherapy)
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Smoking
  • Marijuana use
  • Hypertension
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Nerve damage to the head or neck
  • Breathing through the mouth at night

Dry mouth does not directly result from aging, but you might be more likely to suffer dry mouth as you get older. And of course, simply being dehydrated can temporarily cause dry mouth.

There are more than 400 medications that can cause dry mouth. Check this list of the types of drugs likely to cause dry mouth to see if you’re taking any of them: http://seniorsoralhealth.org/wp-content/uploads/Jones-Many-Medications-Cause-Dry-Mouth_Top-20.pdf

What Action Should You Take?

The right thing to do is contact us and tell us about the problem, when it started, when it seems to occur and so on. We can rule out any serious problems and then give you advice on how to protect your oral health. We can also help you review any medications you are taking that might contribute to dry mouth.

We can also offer a moisturizing mouth rinse to use during the day or before you go to sleep. If you suffer from sleep apnea or if you are breathing through your mouth at night, we can help you solve those problems as well.

The important thing is to not continue to suffer! Your health and your comfort will be greater if you contact us right away and let us help. We have been helping our neighbors in the Fishers, Indiana area maintain their dental health for more than 15 years. Let us help you achieve your goals for your health.

Fall Creek Dentistry Has Changed My Life!

I grew up in a family that never went to the dentist. I finally went after begging to go at the age of 20. This fear of dentists persisted well into my adult life. In 2013, at the age of 50 – I decided I needed to do something about this. After Fall Creek Dentistry, I no longer fear going to the dentist! It is never too late to make changes in your life. I am glad that I chose Fall Creek Dentistry. I really like the staff and always feel I am treated with kindness and great compassion...Read Full Story
