What Causes Dry Mouth?

Sometimes we procrastinate, or are just too busy with our daily agenda, and ignore symptoms of dry mouth hoping it will go away.

Majority of the time a dry mouth is caused by something very straight forward, such as; dehydration, certain medications, diet and other issues that are treatable once you are properly diagnosed. It is important to act and seek help once you detect any of these symptoms.

Early detection of chronic dry mouth is the best thing you can do for yourself. It could prevent tooth decay, bad breath, periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss.

There are also some medical conditions that cause dry mouth and your dentist can be your advocate and may recommend that you seek medical advice if necessary. Do not ignore symptoms, act today.
