Saliva is critical for swallowing the food that we consume and for keeping our mouths moist at all times. When our mouths have adequate saliva flow, this protects us from tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even bad breath. Dry mouth can occur as a side effect of certain medications, or as a result of an underlying medical condition. To save yourself from dry mouth, visit Dr. Nick Mobilia of Elite Dental Arts.
Dry mouth can leave the oral cavity feeling as if all the water in the world isn’t enough to quench your thirst. It can also cause a sore throat and make it difficult to eat and speak. Treatment options for dry mouth depend on the severity of the condition but usually, consist of saliva substitutes and/or a mouth rinse designed to alleviate symptoms of dry mouth.
If you experience dry mouth, give us a call to discuss your treatment options. To learn more about the services we provide at our practice, visit www.elitedentalarts.com for more information.
