Dry Mouth treatment therapy Smart Smile Dentistry Gainesville FL

Dry mouth therapy and treatment options in Gainesville.

Dentist in Gainesville, FL offering dry mouth treatment. Saliva is a necessary component of a healthy mouth and body. Without it, you couldn’t cleanse your mouth of harmful bacteria and fungi, remineralize the teeth after they are compromised by acids or chew and swallow food. A lack of adequate saliva flow is called dry mouth (xerostomia), and it can increase your risk of tooth decayperiodontal diseasehalitosismouth soresmalnutrition and numerous other life-altering issues if not properly treated by your general dentist in Gainesville, Florida.

Anyone experiencing dry mouth (xerostomia) symptoms in Gainesville, FL should visit Smart Smile Dentistry for dry mouth evaluation and therapy.

Many older patients experience dry mouth, and this is a result of the health conditions that often affect those of advanced age. These conditions can include Sjogren’s syndrome, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, hypertension and stroke. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer can also cause dry mouth, as can a wide array of over-the-counter and prescription medications. Those who smoke or use other tobacco products are also at risk of dry mouth.

Your dentist may recommend self-care strategies to help improve symptoms, such as drinking plenty of water, chewing sugarless gum to stimulate saliva flow and avoiding tobacco products. We may also prescribe medications that help you produce more saliva or recommend special mouth rinses that help lubricate the oral cavity. If medical conditions or treatments are to blame for your issues, our comprehensive dry mouth evaluation and therapy may also include consulting with your physician to determine if your medication regimen can be altered to help alleviate your symptoms.
