Serene Dental Center - What to Do about Dry Mouth

Saliva is necessary to a healthy mouth. It washes away food particles and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria. It aids in chewing, swallowing and digestion, and it enhances the ability to taste. When the salivary glands of the mouth do not produce enough saliva to keep the mouth lubricated, the condition is known as dry mouth. In addition to being uncomfortable, dry mouth can raise the risk of oral health problems including tooth decay, mouth sores and chapped lips. It can also contribute to bad breath, a sore throat or tongue and difficulty chewing or swallowing. If you are experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of dry mouth, Drs. Ali and Shery Mansouri of Serene Dental Center can help. Here, we explain what you need to know about the causes of and treatments for dry mouth.
