Protect Your Oral Health By Treating Your Dry Mouth Problem

There are a variety of reasons for chronic dry mouth. It can be from medication, dehydration, certain health conditions, or aging. During your appointment, we’ll examine your mouth. We want to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, despite this problem. If you have no underlying oral health issues to address, we can recommend products you can use at home. Lozenges and special dry mouth rinses or toothpaste can provide much-needed relief.

Another common cause of dry mouth is sleep apnea. You may have this disorder if you notice additional symptoms such as snoring, bouts of gasping for air during the night, morning headaches, or daytime fatigue.

If this is the cause of your dry mouth, here is what you can expect:

  • We’ll refer you to a sleep doctor who can confirm your condition.
  • You’ll return to our office for a customized oral appliance. We’ll take digital scans of your mouth to create your night guard.
  • You’ll visit us again to pick up your device. It will keep your airways open by gently shifting your jaw forward. It’s easier and more comfortable than a CPAP machine.
  • You begin sleeping throughout the night without snoring or gasping for breath. You feel better during the day too!
