I am wondering whether having a very dry mouth could be caused by inhalers or other meds (not asthma related)
I have always drank lots of water for years due to having very dry mouth & throat.
Mouth gets so dry at times my cheeks & inside front of mouth just stick to my teeth.
As i say i drink lots of water to stop it happening
Yesterday, i went for check up to dentist.
I saw a new dentist & he asked if my mouth is often very dry.
I think first thing that tipped him off was the fact my tongue had affectedmy talking cos dry.
I said its normal for me & i drink lots of water to help.
After my check up (no fillings )
He said drinking water may help but it wasnt enough.
He said the membranes in mouth were becoming too dry & so i dont produce spit basicly
He asked if i had tried using a spray to help. I thought he meant those little ones to freshen breath, but they made my mouth sore.
He didnt mean them.
He prescribed what appears to be spit mixed with some other stuff.
He said if mouth uncomfortable due to dry to use this spray & let him know if it helps or need any more.
A S Saliva Orthana.
It contains mucin xylitol flouride & mineral salts
It tastes a bit like really watered down mouthwash & you spray into cheeks, under tongue & onto tongue.
He said given time, it will help repair some of the damage to membrane & still to drink lots of water
Anyone else using this stuff?
