24 Nov 2014 | Added by Karen Kirkby

Dry Mouth

Dry Mouth (Xerostomia) is a disorder often associated with disorders of salivia production. It affects about 10% of people and is more common complaint in women than men. It can be a very uncomfortable condition and its symptoms vary in scope and severity.

 

Symptoms include

  • Difficulty eating, swallowing, speaking
  • Chapped lips and tongue
  • Burning sensation of tongue and throat
  • Dry throat
  • Bad breath
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Gum disease
  • Increased dental decay
  • Thrush infections
  • Inflammed soft tissue of mouth and throat

The causes of dry mouth include

  • Side effect of some medications - some blood pressure medications - some antihistamines - some antidepressants
  • Radiation treatments to head and neck
  • Diabetes
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Sjogren's Syndrome
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • During pregnancy
  • During breastfeeding
  • Mouth breathing
  • Sleep Apnea

Suggestions to relieve dryness

  • Take frequent sips of water
  • Use water spray bottle to moisten mouth
  • Chew sugarless gum to stimulate salivia flow
  • Suck sugarless hard candy eg sugar free lozenges
  • Suck ice blocks
  • Drink frequently while eating. This will make chewing and swallowing easier and may improve taste
  • Use non spicey, bland gravies as accompaniment to dishes
  • Limit caffeine. many patents report increased dryness after drinking caffeine beverages
  • Saliva substitute (over the counter or from your dentist) GC Dry Mouth, Biotene Oral Balance

CA is one of the most expensive palecs on earth. First, make sure you come with a very reliable car, you'll be using it a lot. Then, you need 3 months rent on day one, first, last and a security deposit. A cheap apartment in an iffy area will be minimum $1000/mo. It would be much easier to get your dental training somewhere cheaper and move to CA when you have a job.
