About dry mouth
Dry Mouth, also known as xerostomia, is a common and distressing problem affecting many people and nearly always associated with a more serious complaint.
Dry Mouth sufferers may experience one or a combination of the following symptoms:
- Infections in the mouth, bleeding gums
- Difficulty in speaking and swallowing
- Mouth sores and ulcers
- Bad breath
- Cracked lips
- Tooth decay
- Frequent thirst
- Burning, dry rough tongue
- Reduction in the taste of flavours in food and drink
- Dry throat and raw dry tongue
Your mouth is kept lubricated and protected by saliva produced by the salivary glands. Dry Mouth should not be ignored, apart from making life miserable, it could lead to a rapid increase in dental decay and an increased risk of mouth infection.
Our customers often say that they don’t like to discuss their dry mouth with their doctor as they don’t wish to feel a nusisance and so they put up with it. However, dry mouth is very easy to treat with a simple spray.
