Greater Risk of Decay & Gum Disease

A dry mouth is bad for you, but a good place for harmful bacteria. This can make you more likely to develop cavities or periodontal problems.

Difficulty Swallowing & Speaking

When your tongue feels like sandpaper, it’s uncomfortable. It also makes it difficult for you to say what you mean to say or to swallow your food.

Bad Breath

The bacteria in your mouth can contribute to a number of problems. You also are more likely to develop halitosis when bacteria are able to thrive. 

The good news is that you can do something about dry mouth. We can help.
