Signs You Struggle with Dry Mouth

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night or go throughout the day with a dry mouth? Having dry mouth is a condition with your salivary glands where they don’t produce enough saliva to keep your mouth moist and wet. Here at Belvedere Family Dentistry we see all kinds of people with this condition and we want you to know that we can help you. We are one of the best dental offices in Charlotte, North Carolina and today in this article we are going to be discussing the signs and symptoms of dry mouth.

Signs and Symptoms of Dry Mouth

Dry mouth is often a side effect of certain kinds of medication that you take, or you can also get dry mouth from radiation therapy for cancer. Dry mouth can also be caused by a condition that you have that affects your glands. Your saliva helps protect your teeth from tooth decay by killing the acid that is produced by bacteria and it also prevents the growth of bacteria by cleaning the food particles in your mouth.

Your saliva also improves how you taste your food and it can make your food softer and easier to chew and swallow. Not having a lot of saliva and having an extremely dry mouth can cause very bad health problems and can have a severe effect on your teeth and gums. It can also change the way you love your food and your appetite. Here are the signs and symptoms of dry mouth.
