Dry Mouth

Wellness Wednesday

Saliva is the number one cavity fighter and natural resource for maintaining a healthy mouth, but antihistamines in over-the-counter allergy medicines can unfortunately lead to a dry mouth.

To combat this annoying condition this allergy season while avoiding cavities linked to dry mouth, drink lots of water, chew sugar-free gum or xylitol mints; rinse with water or a fluoride mouthwash after meals; increase teeth-brushing; and ask your dentist or hygienist about treatments like xylitol tablets or a Bioténe® mouth rinse.
