DRY MOUTH AND Bad breath treatment
What is dry mouth? Dry mouth is also referred to as xerostomia, a condition in which your oral cavity is unusually dry. Typically dry mouth is the result of a decrease in saliva production by salivary glands in the mouth.
Some common causes are related to tobacco use, a variety of autoimmune disorders, medical treatments involving chemotherapy and radiation, and over 400 different prescription medications. We are able to offer a new and innovative treatment called SALIVAMAX. SalivaMax is a supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse that has been clinically proven to reduce hyposalivation, xerostomia, and mucositis. SalivaMax is a partial substitute for natural saliva that moistens, lubricates and cleans the oral cavity.
If you or someone you know is suffering from dry mouth, ask us to prescribe SalivaMax today!
If you have followed all of our basic home care suggestions and are still troubled or concerned about “bad breath”, we have some wonderful products for you to use.
We also recommend daily brushing of your tongue and the use of OraCare mouth rinse. This is a mouth rinse that helps with gum disease and irritation, bad breath, and even colds and viruses. This is available in our office.
