With the summer upon us, we wanted to share a reminder with you all to make sure you drinking plenty of water. The heat can make you dehydrated because you lose a lot of water when you sweat. As a result, this can often increase your risk of dry mouth. It may not sound like a serious condition, but without enough saliva to wash away bacteria, you may experience more cavities and gum infections.
If you are drinking enough water, but still have dry mouth, make sure you see us for treatment. For an appointment in Paducah, KY, call White & White Family Dentistry today at 270-355-7599.
