Save Your Healthy Smile With Our Solutions

Our experienced team at North Oaks Dental takes a comprehensive approach to find the underlying cause of your dry mouth. We’ll perform a thorough examination of your mouth. We may ask you some questions about your medical history, too. Treatment will improve your oral health. You’ll have a greater risk of cavities and gum disease without enough saliva to help rinse away harmful bacteria and food particles.

Dry mouth symptoms can stem from a variety of potential causes, including:

  • Tobacco Use – Tobacco use slows production of saliva, which can lead to persistent dry mouth issues.
  • Medical Conditions – Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and stroke are a few conditions that can contribute to chronic dry mouth.
  • Medications – More than 400 prescription drugs can reduce saliva production. A few examples of these medications are antidepressants, antihistamines, decongestants, and muscle relaxers.
  • Radiation Treatment – Radiation for oral cancer can damage the salivary glands, which can limit their ability to produce enough saliva to keep your mouth properly lubricated.
