What is Dry Mouth?
Dry mouth, termed "xerostomia", is usually associated with the under-functioning of the salivary glands. Dry mouth can be very obvious, annoying and seriously debilitating. For many people, the deteriorating function of the salivary glands is such a slow process, that they almost begin to accept the feeling of dry mouth as normal. However, once swallowing and talking are negatively affected, it becomes more difficult to ignore these discomforts.
Ultimately, dry mouth takes a serious toll on teeth. It can cause enamel erosion, tooth loosening, gum disease, bad breath and various other dental problems such as irritation from dentures and difficulties with chewing and talking.
Swallowing becomes increasingly difficult and particularly scary to some sufferers. Resorting to frequent drinking at night can cause loss of sleep and tiredness.
Many have attempted to relieve the discomfort of dry mouth with negative results:
