There are varying levels of dealing with dry mouth. You may experience it temporarily as the result of taking a course of medicine or due to congestion. Once you’re through with the meds and your congestion is gone, you may stop mouth breathing and your mouth will return to its usual self. However, you may find yourself on the other end of the spectrum, realizing that your oral tissues are dry and no matter what you do, they seem to be staying that way! Consider a couple times it might be best to simply come in to see us.
#1: Your Bad Breath Is Getting Out Of Hand
Nothing you do makes your breath smell better. You brush and floss. You are careful with your eating habits. You’re drinking more water. If your breath continues to smell bad and things seem to be getting worse, rather than better, it’s time to come in to see us about your dry mouth. Your yucky breath is a sign that you are in serious need of more moisture. We can help!
#2: You’re Seeing The Signs
Maybe you are experiencing stringy saliva but you don’t seem to have the ability to chew your food like you used to and swallow comfortably. Perhaps you notice your lips are very dry and are possibly cracking. This puts a serious damper on your ability to make it comfortably through your day. Come talk with us about your dry mouth, so we can get your quality of life back to its usual state.
