Are you suffering from dry mouth? If yes, you’re not alone. One in four people have dry mouth, which means they aren’t producing enough saliva to keep their mouth moist.

Millions of people who wear dentures also suffer from dry mouth, causing them discomfort and negatively affecting their health. Why is Saliva so important? It is essential to people’s health, particularly denture wearers. Saliva creates a suction between the denture and the gum tissue, helping stabilize and retain the denture in place. It also acts like a lubricant, minimizing sore spots and irritations in the mouth caused by dentures.

“Xerostomia” is the correct term for dry mouth, and there are many reasons it happens. The most common cause include:

  • certain medications
  • aging
  • nervousness
  • stress
  • smoking
  • autoimmune deficiencies
  • dehydration
  • vitamin deficiencies
  • cancer therapy, etc.

Treatments for dry mouth include:

  • changing medication or adjusting dosages.
  • there are also over the counter prescription medications that help with dry mouth
  • drinking more water
  • using some cleaners and adhesives also work well in keeping your mouth moist.
