Why dry mouth develops?
Dry mouth or xerostomia in medical terms affects numerous people and appears when saliva is not at optimal levels. The sensation of a sore throat is encountered in many situations when a person does not drink enough water. Persons who take medicines for varied illnesses like diabetes can also develop dry mouth and face an unpleasant bad breath. Because of the lack of saliva, the soft tissues in the mouth are not hydrated enough and food particles cannot be washed away from the teeth. This is how bacteria start to develop and, if combined with the dry soft tissues, will lead to bad breath and eventually to tooth decay if this status persists.
A complete diagnosis can be offered by our Dubai dentists who will perform several investigations to see what causes the dry mouth and the bad breath.
