We all can suffer from Xerostomia (Dry Mouth) but if you notice that your mouth is always dry, then it might be time to visit the dentist. Once at the dentist's office, your dentist will check your oral cavity for signs of decay that can result from the decreased salivary flow. Keep in mind that dry mouth can be caused by a variety of reasons, these include:
- Side Effects In:

Gum disease is an infection in the gum area; the infection can be anything from simple gum inflammation to serious disease. In its early stages, the effects of gum disease can be reversible; but if one does not properly take care of gum infection, it can lead to a more serious and destructive periodontal disease called periodontitis.
This is why regular and constant visits to the dentist are so important; if you treat an infection on time, you can keep strong teeth and a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
