Dry Mouth Treatment Improves Your Oral & Overall Health

Dry mouth is more than just an annoyance. It’s a health concern. That’s why our dental team takes it seriously if you let us know about your dry mouth symptoms during your checkup. We will begin with a thorough dental exam and a review of your oral and medical history. This comprehensive approach helps us uncover the root cause of your dry mouth symptoms.

Depending on our findings, your dentist may recommend lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking or changing medications. They may also suggest:

  • Product Recommendations – Your dentist can recommend products you can use at home, such as ones available from 3M’s Clinpro brand or Biotene. These advanced products help protect against cavities triggered by dry mouth. They blend fluoride with other powerhouse ingredients that effectively keep your smile healthy, even with low saliva production.
  • Sleep Apnea Treatment – Dry mouth is often coupled with other symptoms if you have sleep apnea. If you show symptoms like snoring, report waking up gasping for air, and deal with chronic fatigue, your dentist may recommend apnea treatment. After your diagnosis is confirmed, your dentist will design a custom oral appliance for you that keeps your airways open. This will help you breathe more easily throughout the night and put a stop to your dry mouth symptoms.
