Dry Mouth


Does your throat feel dry all the time? Does your tongue tingle? Do you have trouble chewing or swallowing? You may have dry mouth.

Dry mouth isn't just uncomfortable. It can lead to more serious dental issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. It can also make it tough to wear dentures.

Fortunately, Dr. J. Derek Tieken and the talented dental team at Tieken Smiles Dentistry can treat your dry mouth. Ready for dry mouth treatment? Call our dry mouth treatment League City, TX dentist office at (281) 942-0444.

How Dry Mouth Affects Your Dental Health


Dry mouth is characterized by a lack of saliva. This can be painful because it often causes:

•  Frequent thirst
•  Cracked lips
•  Sores in your mouth
•  Sore throat
•  Hoarseness
•  Difficulties chewing and swallowing

A shortage of saliva also makes your mouth more friendly to bacteria. And bacteria is what causes tooth decay and gum disease.

Treating Dry Mouth


How do we treat dry mouth? We use a line of products, including mouth rinses and gels, from respected brand PerioSciences. These products contain moisturizers and antioxidants to create an environment hostile to bacteria.

We may also suggest more frequent dental cleanings and dental exams so we can closely monitor you for signs of decay and gum disease. And we can protect your teeth from decay with treatments like dental sealants and fluoride varnish.

More Ways to Fight Dry Mouth


We'll also suggest some anti–dry mouth strategies for you to use at home. Some of these may include:

•  Drink lots of water
•  Use room vaporizers to add moisture to the air
•  Suck on sugar-free mints or chew sugar-free gum
