Dry mouth is one of the most common conditions we treat in our office. Though multiple patients have dealt with it for years before working with us, we’re able to make it much more workable through a bit of education and a few small suggestions. Read on to discover more about dry mouth.

The main effect of dry mouth is just that: dry mouth. When the salivary glands do not form the suitable amount of spit, your oral cavity can be left feeling dry or clammy. Sadly, this can create numerous negative side effects and complications in the oral cavity and other parts of the body. If you feel like your mouth is often dry, please give us a call.

To identify whether you are dealing with dry mouth, Dr. Eudoro Vallejo will do a couple of things during your checkup. They will examine your mouth to see if you have a typical amount of spit flowing, and they will ask you about how your oral cavity feels; if your mouth feels dry, tell them. They will look for additional signs of xerostomia, such as oral decay or dental pain.

Sometimes dry mouth is unavoidable. If that’s your case, we’d be ecstatic to aid you. Please call 201-457-9595 now to pencil in your next visit with Dr. Eudoro Vallejo and the Hackensack, New Jersey, team of Eudoro Vallejo; they’ll take great care of you and give you the support you need to deal with dry mouth.
