If you are taking medications to treat cancer or receiving chemotherapy or radiation, you may suffer from dry mouth because these treatments may dry up your salivary glands. Besides being uncomfortable, insufficient saliva increases your chances of having tooth sensitivity, decay and cavities.
It’s important to replenish the minerals in you mouth that you would otherwise have under normal circumstances. See your dentist for an oral exam and evaluation. There are solutions to counter dry mouth and restore mineral loss.
