Why Do I Have Dry Mouth

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Dry mouth (Xerostomia) is a common condition especially among women. Its prevalence increases with aging. One of the leading telltale signs is a reduction or foamy (thick) saliva.

The Causes

For some public speaking or social settings can invoke serious bouts with anxiety. The nervous tension can create embarrassing moments where lips become dry; and, stick to gums or the tongue to the roof of the mouth.

Social settings are not the only cause of xerostomia. Dry mouth can be caused by diabetes and other illnesses. Moreover, medications can be another culprit.

What Are The Effects

Dry mouth is no joke because difficulty speaking or swallowing can occur. Low saliva production often precedes bad breath (halitosis) and the dryness creates a breeding ground for germs and bacteria.

We may not normally associate its affects in other areas of our life, like curtailing our ability to taste food. Persistent dry mouth over time can cause dental decay.
