Thousands of men and women in Folsom and Sacramento suffer from dry mouth. Medically referred to as “xerostomia,” dry mouth occurs when your mouth is not making enough saliva, leading to an unusual “dry” sensation that is not only uncomfortable – it may be harmful to your oral health.
Saliva plays an important role in several important dental and bodily functions:
- Saliva is capable of eliminating some harmful bacteria in your mouth and food.
- Saliva removes food from teeth and gums, and aids in mouth hygiene.
- Saliva provides important minerals for your teeth.
Saliva is also the first part of the digestion process and begins breaking down food, and it keeps your mouth wet and moist, which makes it more comfortable to talk and breath.
Why Treat Dry mouth?
Dry mouth itself may be caused by several medications, anxiety and stress, malfunctioning of the salivary gland, or by several rare illnesses and disorders.
But no matter the cause of dry mouth, treating dry mouth is often a priority for your oral health. Dry mouth can lead to sore throat, infection, burning sensations, tooth decay, and several other oral health issues, especially when left untreated.
