Summit Dental Center thinks your meds could be causing your bad breath!

Many Americans experience the daily chronic syndrome which is called bad breath. However, many of our Houstonians may not know that bad breath could actually be caused by some of the medications that you might be taking. It is a common enough side effect that is known as Xerostomia, giving us our “dry Mouth.” Well, it is this very lack of saliva that enables bacteria to buildup as the enzymes from your saliva cannot combat the growing bacteria and food particles that enter your mouth. These enzymes are crucial for digestion and also for cleansing your teeth with a constant supply of calcium to protect against left over sugars which are known for causing cavities. Summit Dental Center wants our Houston populace to know that your bad breath could be a very symptom of your meds and you should contact us immediately if you are experiencing Xerostomia or dry mouth from them. Do not let your meds interfere with your oral health any longer! [Read more…]
