Dry Mouth Dentist, Hawthorn East
Dehydration is the major cause of dry mouth, although some medical conditions and treatments can contribute. Diabetes can reduce your saliva flow, therefore resulting in dry mouth. Anxiety, stress, mouth breathing, some antihistamines, radiotherapy, snoring and just getting older are all factors that can contribute to dry mouth syndrome. Our dentist can recommend products to keep your mouth moist and protect against tooth decay. There are mouthwashes, moisturisers and artificial saliva products available to keep you comfortable.
