Protect Your Oral Health With Dry Mouth Treatment

When your mouth isn’t producing enough saliva, you aren’t washing bacteria and food particles away from your teeth and gums. This can increase your risks for dental health issues such as plaque, cavities, and gum disease. As part of our general dental care, Dr. Stanfield can recommend lozenges or other products to alleviate your dry mouth discomfort.

He may also recommend other options to try at home, such as:

  • Chewing sugar-free gum
  • Reducing your caffeine and alcohol consumption
  • Avoiding mouthwashes made with alcohol
  • Purchasing over-the-counter products

You may have underlying concerns that should be addressed as well. If you’re also dealing with daytime drowsiness, waking up throughout the night, gasping for air while you sleep, or snoring, you’re showing signs of sleep apnea. We can create a custom-fit mouthguard that will keep your airways open while you sleep and stop you from snoring. This also helps eliminate dry mouth issues.

Living with chronic dry mouth means it’s even more important to visit us regularly for checkups. You’ll want to stay on top of your cleanings and exams so we can ensure your oral health is at its best.

If you are tired of living with dry mouth in Glendale, call 623-244-4304 today to schedule an appointment. You can also Schedule Online. Ask about our membership plan to find out how you can save on preventive services!

Common Questions About Dry Mouth

What does dry mouth mean?

If you have a chronic dry mouth, there could be a number of causes for this condition. It could be a result of a medication you’re taking, insufficient saliva production, or diseases such as diabetes. Radiation treatment for cancer can also cause a dry mouth. We’ll get to the root cause of your problem before any recommendations are made.

How can you treat dry mouth at home?

Depending on the cause of your dry mouth, you can take successful steps to remedy the condition. It may be as simple as drinking more water to keep you well hydrated. We can also recommend specialty products you can use at home to help keep your mouth moist so you feel more comfortable.

Can dry mouth cause bad breath?

Chronic bad breath is one of the symptoms of dry mouth. Normally, saliva helps wash away the dead cells that are constantly accumulating in your mouth. If they aren’t removed, these cells cause your breath to smell bad. Saliva also helps rinse away substances that, when combined with the bacteria in your mouth, cause cavities and gum disease.
