What causes dry mouth and tooth decay?

An estimated 30% of adult tooth decay is caused by having a dry mouth. People taking multiple medications, whether prescription or over the counter, are at a significantly higher risk of developing a dry mouth.  Common drugs that cause dry mouth are those used for cancer treatment, depression, anxiety, pain, allergies, colds, obesity, acne, epilepsy, high blood pressure, nausea, asthma and the list goes on. Our team can help you select the best dental products to use at home to lower your risk of tooth decay.
