About Dry Mouth
Dry mouth, also known as Xerostomia, is a common and distressing problem affecting many people.
The mouth is usually kept lubricated by saliva that is produced by the salivary glands. Saliva is an amazing fluid. Not only does it lubricate, it also helps protect the soft tissue of the mouth. Dry mouth occurs when there is a significant reduction in the production of saliva.
Dry mouth should not be ignored. Apart from making life miserable, a lack of the cleansing and shielding properties that saliva offers can lead to inflammation, a rapid increase in dental decay and an increased risk of mouth infection.
People often feel reluctant to discuss the problem with their doctor, with many feeling it is something they simply have to put up with, they don’t. There are many ways that patients can gain symptomatic relief from Dry Mouth.
