Are you under the grips of poor oral health care? Do your teeth and gum suffer due to conditions such as dry mouth? Dry mouth is an oral health disorder commonly linked to gum disease and cavities. If your mouth lacks saliva, dry mouth will occur. To treat dry mouth conditions, consider a plan that effectively promotes the existence of saliva.
Saliva is extremely important part of your oral health as it can help counteract harmful acids design to damage your tooth enamel. In addition, saliva can wash away harmful food debris and bacteria that can accumulate within your mouth. However, if saliva is absent, dry mouth can arise, thus increasing your risk for tooth decay, cavities, sore throat, issues breathing, and difficulties when chewing food.
In some situations where dry mouth is present, rare diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome can be the cause. Sjogren’s syndrome is an immune system disorder in which your body attacks the glands of your body, especially those that create saliva. if you believe you have dry mouth or any condition related to dry mouth, please visit us soon for an oral examination.
