Xerostomia, also known as dry mouth, is a condition that can be very uncomfortable. If you encounter this issue, you may want to seek professional assistance to help diagnose and start a treatment plan. It is an essential factor always to keep your mouth hydrated to produce saliva. Saliva helps with food digestion and to clean food particles and debris inside the mouth. When you start to feel and suspect that you may have a dry mouth, you may wonder how it was caused. It can be simple as a side effect with certain types of medication such as anxiety medications, antihistamines, muscle relaxants, to name a few.
With the sudden change impacted on the entire world due to the pandemic, there is no denying that it had created a significant difference in our daily living over the past year. The life that we once knew had changed drastically. The dentistry perspective had changed from everyone's ability to comply with wearing facemasks and social distancing rules when entering a dental office. What are the relationships between COVID-19 and periodontal disease, you may ask? Systemic inflammation is a symptom of both periodontal disease and COVID-19. Although it is still very early to prove the connection, research conducted up to this day clearly shows the correlation between COVID-19 and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease has always been imperative and essential to get treated at its early stage. If you allow it to be left untreated, it can result in tooth loss. Here are some signs and indicators to be aware of if you notice any symptoms:
When you have one or more missing teeth when you reach an older age, it is recommended to get dental implants. The benefit of dental implants is that they do not uncomfortably slide around, shift, or fall out. The implant will be fused into (or onto) your jawbones underneath the gums so it can function similarly to your natural teeth. What are dental implants, and how do they work? Dental implants are metal fixtures that are surgically fastened to your jawbones for an artificial tooth to be mounted. The metal implants become an anchor to your bones through osseointegration (where the bone fuses to the metal implants).

Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ) refers to the syndrome that affects the temporomandibular joints where the jaw meets the skull. There are helpful facts about TMJ that help you be aware and understand more about the syndrome.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a connecting joint from your jawbone to your skull on each side of your jaw. Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a type of TMJ disorder that can cause pain and discomfort in your jaw joints and the muscles that control your jaw movements. There is no exact cause or determination of how TMJ disorder develops. The pain you may experience can be due to a combination of factors such as a jaw injury, arthritis, or genetics.
