How Do You Get Rid of Bad Breath From Having Dry Mouth?

darkman_toothache.hrTips for Dry Mouth

Pewaukee dentists can help you with dry mouth! Dryness causes food and plaque to stick to your teeth and tongue. It stinks! Brush with an electric tooth brush. I like Sonicare. It does a good job. FLOSS too. Brushing and flossing combined will help.

Don’t Forget Your Tongue!

Now, get a tongue scraper and scrape the goo off. Keep on top of it daily. If u use a mouthwash, be sure it is alcohol free. Alcohol dehydrates and makes things worse. Listerine Zero is one brand.  Why are you so dry? Ask your MD for answers.

What Is Dry Mouth?

Dry mouth is the feeling that there is not enough saliva in the mouth.  Every once in a while everyone may have dry mouth– if they are nervous, upset, under stress, or taking certain medications. But if you have dry mouth all or most of the time, see Dr. Stumpf. Many older adults have dry mouth, but it is not a normal part of aging.

How Dry Mouth Feels

Dry mouth can be extremely uncomfortable. Some people notice a sticky, dry feeling in the mouth. Others notice a burning feeling or difficulty while eating. The throat may feel dry, which can make swallowing difficult. Also, people with dry mouth may get mouth sores, cracked lips, and a dry, rough tongue, and bad breath.
