Persistent dry mouth causes constant sore throats and hoarseness, but did you know it could also damage your teeth?

Posted: 10/06/15

Dry mouth is often a side effect of medications such as antihistimines, decongestants, analgesics and diuretics. Without enough saliva to cleanse the teeth and dilute acids produced by bacterial plaque, your teeth are subject to rapid decay. When you must take medication causing dry mouth, the following may help minimize the risk of damage to your teeth. Sip water frequently, suck on sugar-free hard candy to stimulate saliva flow, be diligent with your home care, ask about using topical fluoride, and schedule more frequent dental exams if you will be taking the medication over the long term. See us today for more information.
