Xerostomia (dry mouth) - At Comprehensive Dental Care We Can Help

Dry mouth problem is common in the Washington DC area. The lack of adequate saliva is more than bothersome for three out of every ten Americans.

When the natural flow of saliva is reduced, you can experience trouble swallowing, pain throughout oral tissues and, nearly always, a short-cut to dental caries and gum disease. The tongue sticks, food doesn't have much taste, and digestion suffers.  (For more details call us at 202 466-3599.)

Dr. Marx knows that Xerostomia, or dry mouth syndrome, can come with aging, or often as a side effect of many medications.   Half of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy experience an extreme form of xerostomia, with critical effects on their dental health. At Comprehensive Dental Care we can help provide relief in the form of prescriptions for dry mouth toothpaste, special saliva-producing chewing gum, or saliva substitute solutions.

For more information regarding Xerostomia and methods of treatment, please call our office at 202 466-3599.
