How can you cure xerostomia? Regrettably, curing dry mouth is impossible. We’re terribly sorry if you’re suffering from dry mouth, and we want to do all we can to help you deal with it. The following are a few things you should understand about xerostomia.
The goal of xerostomia treatment is to identify its causes, address them and prevent further complications. Xerostomia can be addressed in many ways, and Dr. Mark R. Sheils will aid you to determine the best option for your circumstance. This will probably include prescribing a saliva replacement or working with your other doctors to prescribe meds that don’t have the side effect of producing dry mouth.
Xerostomia is a dental condition where the oral cavity feels dry continuously. It stems from a shortage of spit production, and it can be caused by meds, medical conditions, radiation and more. To treat xerostomia, your doctor may prescribe a saliva replacement. Xerostomia can cause destructive side effects like severe oral pain and difficulty speaking, chewing, swallowing and breathing. Dr. Mark R. Sheils inspects patients for xerostomia during each appointment at Timber Creek Dental.
