BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Dry Mouth

When the salivary glands do not produce enough saliva, the mouth gets dry and uncomfortable. Due to certain conditions, such a phenomenon can occur and this condition is known as dry mouth or xerostomia. Xerostomia or dry mouth can occur due to multiple reasons. Read on more to find all about the different causes and symptoms of dry mouth.

Causes:

  1. Side effects of certain medications: Dry mouth occurs due to the effect of certain prescription and nonprescription medications. Drugs used to treat depression, pain, allergies, anxiety, epilepsy, obesity, nausea and psychotic disorders can cause dry mouth condition as a side effect. Sedatives and muscle relaxers can also cause dry mouth.
  2. Side effects of certain disease and infections: Certain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, mumps, diabetes, hypertension, cystic fibrosis, anemia and Parkinson's disease can also cause dry mouth or xerostomia.
  3. Side effect of treatments: If the salivary glands are damaged due to certain reasons, then less saliva is secreted resulting in dry mouth. Certain treatments such as radiation treatments in the head and neck or chemotherapy sessions could indirectly cause dry mouth by damaging the salivary glands.
  4. Nerve damage: Dry mouth can also be due to a person suffering from nerve damage caused due to accident or surgery.
  5. Dehydration: Conditions like fever, excessive vomiting, diarrhea, excessive sweating, which cause dehydration can also cause dry mouth.
  6. Removal of salivary glands: Surgical removal of the salivary glands also causes dry mouth. 
  7. Lifestyle choices: Certain lifestyle preferences such as chewing tobacco or smoking can cause dry mouth.

Symptoms:

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Hormonal changes in women increase senitivity and may also lead to the occurance of gingivitis.

Hello Doctor, I have additional half teeth attached with a teeth and that half teeth has cavities. So is there any treatment for that or I have to consult dentist to remove that teeth?

Usually we do not advise fillings or other restorative treatment for extra (supernumerary) teeth, unless they are going to serve some useful purpose in the overall dental rehabilitation of the patient. So, the usual advise would be extraction, but, the actual plan would only be suggested after a clinical evaluation by your dentist.

Hello Lybrate user, 11 weeks means you are at the end of 1st trimester, which is actually good because any dental treatment can safely be done in 2nd trimester. You should a visit a dentist and start a course of basic antibiotic and a simple analgesic. By examining the teeth and associated structure dentist will tell you the necessary treatment. Root canal can safely be done in 2nd trimester.

I am suffering from bad breathing. Had visited aiims and they did scaling and treatment and but treatment lasted for 8-9 months. Then again I am facing bad breathing with bleeding. Pls suggest some mouthwash and permanent treatment. M just done with scaling.

In normal healthy individuals it is recommended to get the scaling and polishing done in approximately every 6 months duration. In severe cases (consider yourself among them) a more frequent visit required (say every 2-3 months) until problem subsides. A periodontist is an expert in this regard. Many times underlying diseases related to gastric, respiratory problems, diabetes or general illnessare ignored by general practitioners which often contributes to bad breath problem. So a clear understanding about your problem will definitely fix your trouble.
