Why you Should Manage Dry Mouth

During a cold winter night, when your heating system has been turned on, you woke up with
a dry mouth. This is quite normal! You take a little sip of water and go back to sleep.

However, this discomfort is part of the everyday life of approximately 20% of adults. Dry mouth, also known, as xerostomia, is an abnormal dryness of the mucous membranes in the mouth, due to a reduction of the flow or change in the composition of saliva. In fact, saliva plays several roles to maintain oral health: 

• Acting as a buffer to neutralize acidic challenges
• Aiding in the immune response 
• Aiding in proper speech and articulation
• Delivering calcium, phosphate and fluoride, essential composants of an healthy oral health
• Performing as a lubricating agent
• Playing an active role in elimination of food and bacteria
• Protecting exposed root surfaces

So what happens when you do not produce enough saliva?

Some sorts of discomfort can be felt. A sticky or dry feeling in the mouth, difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, dry and hard tongue, and chapped lips are just a few symptoms that can alert you!

Dry mouth can also have major impacts on the rest of your oral health.

• Cavities
• Oral lesions
• Gum disease
• Irritation of the mouth tissues 
• Bad breath

 


If you think you have this condition, you can also follow these few mouth-watering tips:
1. Drink water regularly 
2. Avoid caffeine, soft drink, alcohol, and spicy or acid foods 
3. Quit smoking 
4. Chew gum without sugar (this will activate your production of saliva)
5. Protect your teeth by brushing them at least twice a day

As you may know, we also have a wide range of innovative and highly effective solutions for everybody who suffers from dry mouth, even the worst cases!

I hope this information will help you!
