Dry mouth (xerostomia) is caused by the salivary glands not producing an adequate amount of saliva. Dry mouth isn’t just uncomfortable, it is actually bad for your oral health. Saliva contains a small amount of enzymes, mucus, antibacterial fluid, and electrolytes. It is an essential fluid produced by the body that keeps the mouth, tongue, throat, and digestive system working optimally. It helps prevent tooth and gum disease, eliminates food debris in the mouth, kills viruses, and suppresses the anaerobic bacterial growth responsible for chronic bad breath (halitosis). So without adequate saliva, your mouth is less equipped to fight the bacteria responsible for bad breath and tooth decay. Coffee, nasal congestion, and hundreds of medications are just a few of the many underlying causes of dry mouth.
If you’re suffering from dry mouth, TheraBreath offers many innovative dry mouth products including TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Lozenges, delicious mints that instantly alleviate parched mouths. This is how these three-stage lozenges help combat dry mouth.
