Treating Dry Mouth

Treating Dry MouthDry mouth is an uncomfortable condition that is related to insufficient amounts of saliva. Many factors can contribute to the development of dry mouth, including certain medications, health conditions and lifestyle habits. Temporary dry mouth is somewhat common, but when dry mouth becomes chronic, it can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. You may also have difficulties eating or speaking.

If you have dry mouth, you can often find relief by identifying the cause. In some cases, you may need to talk to your doctor about switching medications, altering your dosage or trying new treatments to get any chronic systemic conditions under better control. In the meantime, you can increase your comfort by staying well-hydrated. Frequent drinks of water and sugar-free, low-acid beverages can keep your mouth comfortably moist. Chewing gum and sugar-free candies may be able to stimulate saliva flow. Our dentist in Beverly Hills may prescribe an artificial saliva product that can keep your mouth comfortable and healthy.

There are some things you may need to avoid as well. Spicy or hot foods can further irritate the delicate oral tissues and should be avoided. Tobacco and alcohol can worsen your dry mouth, and sugary snacks, drinks or gums can increase your risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease.

Because dry mouth increases your risk of suffering hygiene-related issues, brush regularly, floss daily and seek routine dental care at least twice a year. Contact our dentist today to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
