Do you ever feel like your mouth and the desert have something in common?
There are several things you can do to help reduce the symptoms of dry mouth, including:
Chewing a sugar-free gum containing xylitol
Drinking plenty of water
Breathing through your nose instead of your mouth (easier said than done!)
Frequent brushing and rinsing with fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinse
Using a room vaporizer to humidify the air in your home
Using an over-the-counter saliva substitute
Since dry mouth can also be a sign of serious illness and cause an increase in cavities and gum disease, excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits are a must. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call us immediately for at 905-725-6060 for an appointment, or visit our website at www.oshawadentist.com. Your health is important to us, and we are here to help you.
