Dry Mouth and Denture Wearers

  • Saliva is extremely important and is essential to everybody’s health, but especially to denture wearers.
  • Saliva helps create suction between the denture and the gum tissue. This helps stabilize and retain the denture. Saliva acts as a lubricant. This helps to prevent irritation and abrasion that can cause sore spots under the denture
  • Finally, saliva is important in the prevention of many oral diseases such as Candida, also known as oral thrush, oral stomatitis and angular cheilosis, which are sores at the corner of the mouth.

Medication / Radiation

Dry Mouth is a side effect of many common medications such as blood pressure medicine, decongestants and anti-depressants.

Illnesses

Systemic conditions such as Sjogrens’s Syndrome, diabetes, digestive problems, salivary gland tumors and liver dysfunction all reduce saliva production, resulting in Dry Mouth.​

Habits

Breathing through your mouth, not drinking enough water (Dehydration), and tobacco relation solutions all contribute to Dry Mouth.​

Aging

As we age, our salivary glands tend to produce less saliva, resulting in Dry Mouth.​
