Dry mouth syndrome

Also known as zerostomia, dry mouth is the condition of not producing enough saliva to keep the mouth lubricated. It may be due to a problem with the salivary glands or a symptom associated with taking various medications.

Saliva plays a number of roles in the mouth, and its function should not be taken for granted since it plays an important part in lubricating oral tissues, speech, taste, digestion, mastication and swallowing.

If you're experiencing zerostomia, you may complain about a dry mouth, have altered taste, feel a need to drink frequently when talking or eating, find it difficult to talk or swallow dry foods, experience oral burning or soreness, have swollen salivary glands or lastly, cracked lips at the corner of the mouth.

Don't hesitate to contact our friendly team to schedule a consultation today to discuss effective remedies to help you overcome zerostomia.
