Wind and colder weather can cause dry mouth. However, some people also struggle to produce adequate saliva all year round. It is important to address this condition, as excess bacteria and food particles in the mouth can lead to further oral health problems.

Ideally, you should consult with your dentist to determine the best approach for your needs. Dry mouth typically results from reduced saliva production. Weather and humidity are also contributing factors that may affect residents of Marietta, GA.

Preventing Dry Mouth

Keeping hydrated is a great way to combat the symptoms of dry mouth. When you drink water, moisture levels in the mouth are raised. This will help to reduce the amount of bacteria in the mouth, while also washing away food particles.

Tooth decay can result from excess levels of bacteria around the teeth and gums. Protect teeth by drinking your daily recommended fluids. This amount will differ depending on several factors but is usually equivalent to at least eight cups of water a day. Consult with your dentist or relevant health providers if you are unsure.

Does the air in your home feel dry during the winter months? Interior moisture levels can drop, contributing to dry mouth. Keeping humidity levels optimal is one way to combat dry mouth while spending time indoors.

A humidifier that is designed to control moisture in the air is recommended. When the AC is running during colder periods, air can become dry and stifling. Your humidifier will offset the effect without sacrificing the comfort provided by heat.

Sugar-free hard candies can stimulate the production of saliva. You won’t feed the bacteria in your mouth but could damage teeth by biting into the candy. This is not a permanent solution but can provide temporary relief from dry mouth.

Similarly, avoid drinks and foods that are overly sugary, as you may exacerbate dryness in the mouth. Breathing through the nose is also recommended, unless you have a medical condition that makes this difficult.

    Jennifer W.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Jean R.

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    Sanjay P.

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
