Dry Mouth and Tooth Decay
22nd / August / 2017
Saliva prevents harmful acids from eroding your teeth. It also helps us chew and swallow food, moving debris from between the teeth. A dry mouth can be damaging to teeth.
- Dry mouth can be caused by medications, dehydration and mouth-breathing
- See your dentist or doctor if you suffer from dry mouth
- Keep rehydrated with water
Visit your dentist if you start to experience bad breath as this can be an early sign of oral problems.
“Getting the cause of dry mouth addressed is essential to having a healthy smile for the future!”
