Reduce Infections by Treating Dry Mouth in South Attleboro

You probably don’t think much about your saliva. It’s such a natural function. So, it’s easy to miss the benefits. When you chew, you produce saliva, which rinses away food particles in your mouth. This process helps begin the digestive process. It also offers dental benefits, such as fighting cavities. If you struggle with dry mouth in Attleboro, we can help. Our treatment will:

  • Increase the amount of saliva in your mouth
  • Make it easier to chew and digest your food
  • Help you speak comfortably and confidently
  • Comfortably become part of your at-home oral care routine
  • Reduce your risk for oral health concerns

Call 508-484-8411 for an appointment. We offer flexible hours during the week, including appointments as early as 8 a.m. and hours as late as 6 p.m.

End Bad Breath & Other Unpleasant Effects of Dry Mouth

Over 400 medications can cause dry mouth. Source.
Struggling with a dry mouth is more than just a day-to-day irritant. If neglected, it can lead to oral health issues later down the road. Without saliva, food remnants and bacteria linger in your mouth. As a result, you increase your risk for cavities and gum disease. When you bring up dry mouth concerns during your checkup, your dentist will recommend products you can use at home.

Our primary concern is treating any underlying issues that have triggered this problem. There are several causes for dry mouth, such as medications you are taking, certain health issues, too much caffeine, and more. However, one we look for is sleep apnea. If you have this disorder, you may notice other symptoms, such as:

  • Snoring
  • Waking up gasping for air
  • Morning headaches
  • Daytime fatigue

We can refer you to a sleep specialist if you notice these signs. They will confirm your sleep apnea diagnosis. Once you have done that, you can return to our office for a custom oral appliance. It will keep your airways open while you sleep. As a result, you will no longer snore. You will also eliminate other apnea symptoms, such as dry mouth.
