Dry mouth can cause a great deal of discomfort, but it’s also problematic for your dental health.
Saliva is your body’s first defense against tooth decay because it washes away food particles that might otherwise stick to your teeth and attract bacteria. When you experience dry mouth, whether it’s caused by medications or certain health conditions, you’re experiencing a decrease in saliva production that can leave you vulnerable to tooth decay.
At Lakeside Dentistry, we make it easy for you to find relief from dry mouth.
“There are some really good products out there that we do recommend to patients, and we’ll give them samples along the way too,” said Dr. Lucy Gores.
In addition to helping you find trusted products that offer relief, we also provide excellent preventative care to stave off tooth decay and gum disease.
