Dry Mouth - Causes & Symptoms Of It!

Dry Mouth - Causes & Symptoms Of It!

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 depressionpain, allergies, anxietyepilepsyobesitynausea 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 diseasemumpsdiabeteshypertensioncystic fibrosisanemia and Parkinson's disease can also cause dry mouth or xerostomia.
  3. Side effects 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:
Dry mouth has several symptoms. If you have some or all of the symptoms mentioned below, then you are more than likely suffering from dry mouth.

  1. A sticky and dry feeling in the mouth. 
  2. The frequent feeling of being thirsty.
  3. A dry, parched feeling in the throat.
  4. The tongue being dry, raw and red.
  5. There is discomfort and problem while you are speaking or experiencing problems with chewing, tasting or swallowing food.

  8. Having a bad breath.

Severe Toothache - How To Get Relief From It?

Severe Toothache - How To Get Relief From It?

Those who have experienced it would vouch for the fact that a toothache is one of the worst pains. There could be times when the attack happens out of nowhere and you are crying for relief.

The tooth has 2 parts - the visible part called the crown and the invisible part called the root which is embedded in the jaw bone and covered by the gums.  

Both the crown and the root have 3 layers from inside out. The crown has enamel, dentin, and pulp. The enamel is the mineralized part of the tooth, dentin has fine sensory dentinal tubules, and the pulp receives nerve and blood supply to the tooth through a small orifice at the end of the tooth called the apex.  On the root surface, instead of enamel, there is a softer substance called cementum.  The dentin and the pulp continue through the tooth but are thinner in the root portion of the tooth.

The mouth has the largest amount of bacteria in the body. These act on the food deposits on the tooth and produce acid which leads to the breakdown of the enamel. The only symptom when enamel breakdown happens is food lodgment, and it continues till treatment ensues. Once the breakdown reaches the dentin, sensitivity sets in, and most people go for treatment then. If not, the next layer is the pulp, when there is severe pain.  This acute pulpitis causes pain in spurts and can be unbearable.

On the root surface, if there is periodontal disease and the gum line goes down, then cementum gets worn off (far more easily than enamel) and decay reaches the dentin and pulp (again faster than in the crown).

Whatever the case, the treatment would be the same:

  • Dental examination, clinical testing, and x-rays would be diagnostic. Tapping the tooth would reproduce the same pain and that is indicative of acute pulpitis
  • Antibiotics and painkillers would be given to control the pain
  • Once the infection subsides, root canal therapy is initiated.  Using the decayed portion to gain access to the root, thin instruments called reamers and files are used to clean out the pulp space completely. They are then shaped to accommodate an inert substance called gutta percha which ensures infection does not seep into the tooth again.
  • With RCT, the tooth is weakened, and therefore a crown needs to be placed. This could either be a ceramic crown or a full metal crown based on economic and esthetic reasons.

The best way to avoid this is regular visits to a dentist so that decay is identified in the early stages and treated with the minimal cost and maximum natural tooth preservation.

I recently had a dental implant on one of my upper front teeth. The crown is bumpy from inside as compared to my other real teeth. The doctor said that it will have bump as it is my front teeth. Is it so? It's really irritating as my tongue is always touching it. What should I do?

Hi Lybrate-User, if you are well aware of your condition, then I would recommend you to visit a dentist for a deep scaling procedure. Hoe this helps.

Quick And Painless Single Sitting Root Canal Treatment!

Quick And Painless Single Sitting Root Canal Treatment!

Gone are the days when root canal treatment would mean multiple visits to the dentist. Root canal treatment at complete dental solutions is a single visit procedure. Single sitting root canal treatment is painless & less time consuming

Root canal treatment is a way that can repair and save damaged or infected tooth without removing it permanently. The treatment is done when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the root canal that contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or infected.

The different causes of this inflammation or infection are deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, a crack in the tooth and an injury to a tooth. The untreated pulp inflammation can lead to an abscess and cause pain.

The common signs which may warn you about pulp damage or infection are a pain, discoloration of the tooth, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and difficulty in chewing. Sometimes, however, there are no symptoms.

In single sitting RCT- all the steps of the root canal are done on the same day. The canals are first located and cleaned thoroughly. They are enlarged using new technologically advanced instruments and techniques. The canals then receive their final fillings and sealed

How single sitting root canals are more beneficial?
-single time injection
-one course of antibiotics
-saves you multiple visits
-less discomfort and easier healing

Dental Hygiene Tips!

Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.
