Dry Mouth: More Than Just a Nuisance

It should be easy to seal an envelope, but those who suffer from a condition called xerostomia, or dry mouth, usually have to reach for some tape instead. Dry mouth can not only hinder your enjoyment of food, but affect the health of your teeth. Heavy plaque and food accumulations tend to occur with this condition, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Saliva is the body's self-cleansing mechanism. It helps remove food, debris, and plaque from the tooth surfaces, protecting you from oral diseases. It cleans your teeth and neutralizes acids, which prevents tooth decay. People who have dry mouth are very susceptible to cavities, especially on the roots of their teeth, so please call us today at (855) 267-2676 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Edward Ward.

Adults Get More Cavities Than Kids

Modern dentistry, with the help of sealants, fluoride, and preventive care, has dramatically reduced tooth decay in children. However, there’s been an increase in decay in seniors. Some medicines dry out the mouth, for example, reducing salvia. Saliva is vital in fighting tooth decay because it helps neutralize acids, has a disinfectant quality, washes away bacteria, and helps prevent food from sticking to your teeth.

If you have questions about senior dental care, please call Interstate Dental Clinic today at (855) 267-2676.
