Dry Mouth Can Lead to Chronic Oral Health Problems

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
Dry mouth comes from a variety of sources, including sleep apnea, dehydration, or an underlying medical condition, even medications. But regardless of where it comes from, you need to ensure that your oral health remains a top priority while you have dry mouth symptoms. How Does Dry Mouth Hurt Oral Health? Our saliva is a miraculous thing. It holds the keys when it comes to dental health because of all of its components. For example, while you sleep, your saliva is meant to repair some of the damage that has been done to the surface of your teeth—if you get dry mouth during the night from sleep apnea or from sleeping with your mouth open, there is no maintenance that can happen.

This is necessary because if acid is left on your teeth, it greatly increases cavities' rate of decay and frequency. So, dry mouth hurts your oral health by not allowing your saliva to do its job.
