The Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center Guide To Dry Mouth

Denver Dentist

Many folks in our Denver community experience dry mouth occasionally. Some develop dry mouth in social situations or when they are under a lot of stress. Sporadic or infrequent dry mouth is usually not a problem. Constant dry mouth, or xerostomia, is not only irritating, it can lead to severe health problems.

Denver people should not take their saliva for granted. Your saliva plays a very important role in maintaining your health. One of its roles is to help digest your food. The moment food enters your mouth, saliva starts breaking it down so your body can metabolize it. If you don’t produce enough saliva to perform this task your body may not be getting important nutrients needed to stay healthy.

Saliva also functions as a disinfectant by cleansing the mouth of leftover food, bacteria, and fungi.
This helps prevent tooth decay and infections. Many Denver residents don’t realize that many of the foods we eat are very acidic and our saliva helps counteract those acids in our mouths.

We are Drs. Almeida & Bell and at Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center, we have been treating xerostomia at our cosmetic dentistry practice since 1977. We recommend cutting back on caffeine in such drinks as cola, coffee, and tea. Not only do these beverages stain and discolor your teeth, the caffeine can contribute to dry mouth. We also recommend drinking water throughout the day to make sure you are adequately hydrated.

Tobacco and alcohol can also contribute to dry mouth. Consult your Denver physician if you are taking medication that is causing your dry mouth.

Dry mouth is not a natural part of aging, so call Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center today and schedule an appointment if your dry mouth is getting worse as you grow older
