Maybe Dry Mouth Did It.

July 4, 2016

Every once in a while, a patient will come in for their check up and all of a sudden they have numerous cavities after years of having none. There has to be a reason. Have they changed their diet to include sugary foods? Have they changed their oral hygiene habits and stopped cleaning the way they should? Both are possible. However, the most common reason I encounter is dry mouth. It can be a side effect of anti cancer therapies or a result of being placed on a new medication. In any event, dry mouth syndrome can have a devastating effect on your teeth. You no longer have the buffering capacity of saliva and, as a result, are very prone to multiple cavities. Fortunately, there are solutions available to help fight the consequences such as the Biotine line of products. If you are suffering from dry mouth, please seek the advice of your dentist before it is too late.
