Dry Mouth is a side effect of many common medications such as blood pressure medicine, decongestants and anti-depressants.
Systemic conditions such as Sjogrens’s Syndrome, diabetes, digestive problems, salivary gland tumors and liver dysfunction all reduce saliva production, resulting in Dry Mouth.
Breathing through your mouth, not drinking enough water (Dehydration), and tobacco relation solutions all contribute to Dry Mouth.
As we age, our salivary glands tend to produce less saliva, resulting in Dry Mouth.
