About Dry mouth
When we don't produce enough saliva, the mouth gets dry and uncomfortable. Dry mouth or xerostomia is common in older people affecting around one in five elderly people. Saliva moistens and cleanses the mouth, helps to process food and prevents infection by controlling bacteria and fungi in the mouth. Some people mistake thirst for dry mouth, but the causes are different. The Common symptoms include: a sticky, dry feeling in the mouth; frequent thirst; sores in the mouth; sores or split skin at the corners of the mouth; cracked lips; a dry feeling in the throat; a burning or tingling sensation in the mouth and especially on the tongue; problems speaking or trouble tasting, chewing, and swallowing; hoarseness, dry nasal passages, and bad breath.
