Dry mouth caused by the improper functioning of the salivary glands is called xerostomia. We can detect it from a sensation of viscosity in the mouth or if our saliva is thick and stringy. Throat pain together with a feeling of dryness could also be a symptom of xerostomia.
What causes xerostomia?
- Alcohol and tobacco
- Medicines and treatments
- Disorders of the salivary glands
KNOW THE SYMPTOMS
Dry mouth is a common problem that must be treated as in most cases it can cause discomfort in everyday activities such as speaking or swallowing.
Long-term xerostomia can produce tooth decay and oral thrush as well as halitosis. It is accompanied by a sensation of dryness in the mouth that improves slightly whenever we drink liquids; the tongue may also feel dry or lumpy.
