Don’t Let Dry Mouth Ruin Your Beautiful Smile
We Can Help You Keep Your Mouth Healthy
People are living longer and healthier lives. We see this in their dental health. Long gone are the assumptions that people will lose teeth as they age. That simply doesn’t have to be true. What is true is that your overall health, including your teeth, need to be a focus. Eating healthy, exercising, and taking care of your body is important to help ward off the illnesses and conditions that are associated with (but not limited to) aging. Poor dental health may also be associated with serious medical conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia and other health problems common in older adults. While certain medications and health problems may affect your dental health by causing dry mouth, which may result in extensive decay.
Dry mouth is more common than you think. 3 out of 5 adult patients that we see in our office, suffer from dry mouth.
