Top SOME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FAQ

Select one of the above questions to find out it's answer.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Are x-rays really necessary?

Absolutely. It is impossible to see directly between the teeth or under the gums or bone without the use of a dental radiograph. Many diseases and conditions can only be detected with the use of dental x-rays.

X-rays allow dentists to detect disease and other conditions much sooner than the clinical examination alone. When problems are identified early, it's easier to resolve them and avoid more costly treatments.

 

What You Can Do About Bad Breath?
1. Brush and floss more frequently
2. Scrape your tongue
3. Avoid foods that sour your breath (onions and garlic)
4. Kick the smoking habit
5. Rinse your mouth after meals
6. Skip after-dinner mints and chew gum instead
What Causes Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)?

Side effect of certain medications. Dry mouth is a common side effect of many prescription and nonprescription drugs, including drugs used to treat depression, anxiety, pain, allergies, and colds (antihistamines and decongestants), obesity, acne, epilepsy, hypertension (diuretics), diarrhea, nausea, psychotic disorders, asthma (certain bronchodilators), and Parkinson's disease. Dry mouth can also be a side effect of muscle relaxants and sedatives.

Side effect of certain diseases and infections. Dry mouth can be a side effect of medical conditions, including Sjögren's syndrome, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, anemia, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, Parkinson's disease, stroke, and mumps.

Side effect of certain medical treatments. Damage to the salivary glands, the glands that produce saliva, for example, from radiation to the head and neck and chemotherapy treatments for cancer, can reduce the amount of saliva produced.

  • Nerve damage - Dry mouth can be a result of nerve damage to the head and neck area from an injury or surgery.
  • Dehydration - Conditions that lead to dehydration, such as fever, excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, blood loss, and burns can cause dry mouth.
  • Surgical removal of the salivary glands.
  • Lifestyle - Smoking or chewing tobacco can affect saliva production and aggravate dry mouth.
  • Continuously breathing with your mouth open can also contribute to the problem.
Why Is Dry Mouth a Problem?

It increases a person's risk of gingivitis (gum disease), tooth decay, and mouth infections, such as thrush. Dry mouth can also make it difficult to wear dentures.

How Is Dry Mouth Treated?

If you think your dry mouth is caused by certain medication you are taking, talk to your doctor. He or she may adjust the dose you are taking or switch you to a different drug that doesn't cause dry mouth.

In addition, an oral rinse to restore mouth moisture may be prescribed. If that doesn't help a medication that stimulates saliva production, may be prescribed.

Other steps you can take that may help improve saliva flow include:

  • Sucking on sugar-free candy or chewing sugar-free gum.
  • Drinking plenty of water to help keep your mouth moist.
  • Protecting your teeth by brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, using a fluoride rinse, and visiting your dentist regularly.
  • Breathing through your nose, not your mouth, as much as possible.
  • Using a room vaporizer to add moisture to the bedroom air.
  • Using an over-the-counter artificial saliva substitute.
