Dry Mouth: Can Mouth Spray Help?

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Atlantic Dentistry
Dry Mouth: Can Mouth Spray Help?Dry mouth is a common oral health condition that is characterized by a reduced flow of saliva. People who have dry mouth may have difficulties in chewing, swallowing, and speaking. Since saliva neutralizes acids in the mouth, its reduction can cause oral health issues like sensitive teeth, cavities, and infection. That is why it is important to treat it effectively.

How Can Mouth Spray Help?

Mouth sprays help to relieve dry mouth as they contain a saliva substitute. Although this substance is meant to replace the lubrication provided by saliva, it is not an exact match for your body's natural saliva. Hence, they are only taken as a temporary measure.

Mouth spray leaves a layer of moisture in the tissues inside the mouth which can prevent feelings of dryness. However, the spray wears off in time leaving your mouth dry again.

If you want long-term relief, make sure you schedule an appointment with Dr. Sebastien Murphy and Dr. Murphy at Atlantic Dentistry so that they can treat the underlying conditions that are causing your dry mouth. These may include nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune disorders, side effects of medication, dry mouth, and even pregnancy.

There are different types of dry mouth sprays available in the market and they contain varying ingredients so be sure to read the ingredients.

Benefits of Mouth Spray

Mouth sprays are a simple and convenient way to keep your mouth moisturized. They can be carried with you anywhere so that you can spray your mouth whenever the need arises. This spray can be used as per our instructions.
