As we get older, we enter a second round of cavity prone years. One common cause of cavities at this age is dry mouth. Dry mouth is not a normal part of aging. However, it is a side effect for more than 500 medications. Dr. Philipp can help make recommendations to help relieve dry mouth symptoms to prevent cavities. He may suggest mouthwash, drinking more water, sugar free gum or lozenges to stimulate saliva production, and avoiding food and beverages that irritate dry mouth, such as coffee, alcohol, and carbonated soft drinks. Contact Dr. Philipp today if you are experiencing these symptoms.
