What do I do About a dry Mouth?

Many seniors in today’s healthcare environment have retained their teeth, avoiding the trauma of removable dentures. However, many seniors experience dry mouth as a side effect of consistent medication. Without the benefit of saliva to decrease bacteria, an increase of cavities can occur. Anyone on a medication with a side effect of a dry mouth should be encouraged to see Dobson Ranch Dental Care for regular dental cleanings and topical fluoride rinses.
