Why Is Dry Mouth Dangerous For Denver Dental Patients?

Dentist DenverHello, welcome to the Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center blog. Today we are going to talk about Dry Mouth, an unpleasant condition that can actually endanger the oral health of Denver cosmetic dentistry patients.

Reduction of saliva flow resulting in a dry mouth is a more common problem among older Denver adults, however, people of all ages in the Denver area may experience the symptoms of dry mouth at one time or another. These symptoms include a dry, red tongue, difficulty swallowing, and persistent sore throat.

Sometimes dry mouth in dental patients is caused by a disease or infection, but a more frequent cause of dry mouth for patients in Denver is prescription medications.

Decongestants, blood pressure medications, antidepressants, and painkillers (all used extensively in Denver) are just some of the drugs that list ‘dry mouth’ as a common side effect.

It is common for allergy-prone Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center dental patients to complain of dry mouth when they start taking antihistamines during the Denver hay fever season.

Aside from being an uncomfortable nuisance, untreated dry mouth can cause tooth damage for Denver dental patients. Adequate saliva is necessary to keep the mouth lubricated, wash the food from teeth, and neutralize the acidic environment caused by plaque. Extensive tooth decay can occur in the absence of saliva for Denver dental patients with chronic dry mouth.

Need the opinion of a dentist? If you are unsure of the cause of your dry mouth, or if you are looking for dry mouth treatments, call Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center to schedule an appointment.
