topic-53

Dry mouth is a common problem and if left untreated can lead to tooth loss, tooth decay and infections in the mouth. Medicines commonly cause dry mouth. But in some cases dry mouth can be caused by diet and lifestyle, medical treatment, getting older or an underlying disease.

If you have dry mouth, talking to your GP and seeing your dentist for a check-up can help you to find out what might be causing your dry mouth and how to improve the symptoms.
