One of the biggest challenges for dental health is Dry Mouth Syndrome. As we get older, our digestive secretions begin to decline. Saliva in your mouth is one of the most important. Not only does saliva begin the digestion of your food, it fights tooth decay. Your saliva has antibodies and chemicals to combat bacteria. Medications also dry your mouth, 70% of people on multiple medications have a dry mouth. There is a trend that we see more cavities in older people that haven’t had a cavity in decades.
