Preserve Your Oral Health With Dry Mouth Treatment
Insufficient saliva production in your mouth can lead to the buildup of bacteria and food particles on your teeth and gums. Left untreated, it can result in dental health concerns like plaque buildup, cavities, and gum disease.
When you visit us for dry mouth treatment, your dentist will:
Examine your mouth to determine any underlying cause of the issue.
Recommend products, such as Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse, Biotene Dry Mouth Lozenges, Biotene Moisturizing Mouth Spray, XyliMelts, and ACT Dry Mouth Fluoride Rinse. All of those products are designed to alleviate your symptoms.
Advise you on any changes necessary for your oral care routine or lifestyle.
If your dry mouth results from excessive nighttime mouth breathing, they may suggest options like SomniFix Sleep Strips and MyoTape (available in child and adult versions).
Regular checkups are also essential to maintain good oral health if you are living with chronic dry mouth. Be proactive about scheduling your cleanings and exams to ensure your smile stays in top form.

Best dentist I have ever had!!! I recommend him to everyone. His office and staff are so organized and respectful! His methods are very up to date and does great work. My dental assistant that cleans my teeth is so friendly and gentle. I’ve never had such good dental care!
Entire staff is amazing. I had to be seen fairly quickly due to an accident and they were amazing at working on my teeth, referring me out to an amazing oral surgeon and to an endodontist in a very timely manner. I appreciate this team. Very wonderful work. Thank you!
I have been coming here for years and highly recommend this office. The entire staff is both friendly and professional. I have TMJ and they are always patient and willing to work with my jaw sensitivity during any procedures. Attention to detail is spot on.
It’s hard to find a dental office that sincerely cares about its patients. Doctor Vick and his staff truly do!

For anyone looking for an outstanding dentist, look no further than Dr. Vick.
The staff is amazing. Anytime I have had an emergency Dr. Vick has always got me in the same day and has taken care of me. He is gentle and always puts my mind at ease. I didn’t go to the dentist for years because I was so scared of them but Dr. Vick and his staff earned my trust and I trust him to the fullest. The best dentist office I have ever experienced!
I have been a patient at Dr Vick’s office for 35 + years ( Dr Stagis prior to Dr Vick). We moved out of state and I can’t imagine going to any other dental office! His office is immaculately clean, organized, professional and perfect in every way. Jenny cleaned my teeth and still two days later still feel squeaky clean! Her cleaning was so thorough, and covered more than just teeth cleaning. She checked my lymph nodes and all areas for anything unusual. I felt so confident with Dr Vick and his oral exam. Just can’t say enough about this exceptional dental office!
Common Questions About Dry Mouth
What does dry mouth mean?
If you have a chronic dry mouth, there could be a number of causes for this condition. It could be as a result of a medication you’re taking, lack of sufficient saliva production, or a disease such as diabetes. Radiation treatment for cancer can also cause a dry mouth. We’ll get to the root cause of your problem before any recommendations are made.
How can you treat dry mouth at home?
Depending on the cause of your dry mouth, you can take successful steps to remedy the condition. It may be as simple as drinking more water to keep you well hydrated. We can also recommend specialty products you can use at home to help keep your mouth moist, so you feel more comfortable.
Is dry mouth a part of aging?
Dry mouth can be a common occurrence as we age, but it is not solely attributed to the aging process. Many factors can contribute to dry mouth, including certain medications, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices. However, aging itself is not a direct cause of dry mouth. It is important to identify the underlying cause of dry mouth and address it, as untreated dry mouth can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
