Our team will take steps to determine the cause of your dry mouth. We’ll thoroughly examine your mouth and may ask you a few medical questions. Dry mouth symptoms can have a number of causes, including:

  • Medications – Over 400 prescription medications have the side effect of drying out your mouth. Some of the most common include antihistamines, decongestants, antidepressants, and muscle relaxants.
  • Radiation Treatment – Radiation treatment for oral cancer can damage the salivary gland, leaving it unable to produce enough saliva to keep your mouth lubricated.
  • Medical Conditions – Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and stroke are some of the main culprits.
  • Tobacco Use – Smoking and tobacco use can slow saliva production and leave your mouth dry.
