Can you cure dry mouth? Sadly, curing dry mouth is not possible. We’re sorry if you’re suffering from dry mouth, and we want to do all we can to aid you and manage it. The following are some things you should recognize about xerostomia.

The goal of xerostomia treatment is to identify its causes, address them and foil further complications. Xerostomia can be addressed in numerous ways, and Dr. Douglas F. Smith will assist you to identify the greatest option for your specific situation. This will probably include prescribing a spit substitute or working with your other doctors to prescribe meds that don’t have the side effect of producing dry mouth.

Xerostomia is an oral condition where the mouth feels dry continuously. It grows from a shortage of spit production, and it can be caused by medications, medical conditions, radiation and more. To treat xerostomia, your doctor may prescribe a spit replacement. Xerostomia can cause hurtful side effects such as intense dental hurt and trouble speaking, chewing, swallowing and breathing. Dr. Douglas F. Smith inspects patients for xerostomia during every checkup at Douglas F. Smith, DDS.
