Dry mouth is not a normal part of aging. If you have dry mouth, talk to your dentist or your primary doctor. Dry mouth can be a sign of certain diseases or can be caused by medications or the result of medical treatments.
Signs of persistent dry mouth include:
- Constant sore throat
- Burning sensation in the mouth
- Trouble speaking normally
- Difficulty swallowing
- Dry nasal passages
Without the normal amount of saliva, extensive tooth decay can result. At Oak Lane Family Dental, our dentist can recommend various methods to restore moisture and suggest lifestyle changes to increase the salivary flow.
