Everyone’s mouth can be dry sometimes, but if you feel like your mouth is always dry, it may be time to seek treatment. Medications and certain health conditions can lead to dry mouth. At Acharya Dental we first check your teeth for signs of decay that can result from decreased salivary flow. A physician will then test for any underlying disease or conditions that may be causing your dry mouth. Having a dry mouth is not painful but taking care of your teeth and gums and regular dental visits are important when living with dry mouth. Sometimes dry mouth is also caused by certain medications you take, so it is better to inform the dentist about your previous medical history before starting your treatment.
