DRY MOUTH

By : V. Tam

Dry mouth can cause difficulties in speaking, swallowing, chewing and tasting food.  The condition can make dentures less stable in the mouth.  A chronic dry mouth can lead to tooth decay and oral infections, may be a symptom of certain diseases, conditions and medications.

3 natural tips for dry mouth

  1. Brush teeth after each meal/snacks and drink water more frequently.
  2. Chew sugar-free gum and avoid spicy, sugary or salty foods.
  3. Squish a teaspoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil in mouth.

If you suffer from  dry mouth, trips to Credit River Dental Centre are very important for cleanings and early treatment of decay and cavities.  Our team can recommend special toothpaste/mouthwash that suit your condition.

Good Luck!
