Sussex, WI Dental Office
Dear Sussex Dental Patients and Families,
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and preparing to ease back into regular routines. We are ready to get back to work and see everyone’s smiles again! Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and while many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

We wanted to take the time to update you on our office, its measured reopening, and the steps we are taking to ensure we do everything possible to keep our patients and our team healthy.

While our office has been closed, our doctors and team have spent significant time and effort deciding the best practices to resume dental care. Due to the nature of COVID-19 transmission, changes to the way we deliver care are necessary. The scientific information is continually changing, and we remain committed to staying as up-to-date as possible.

How to Deal with Dry Mouth
Posted on 8/28/2019 by Hala Badawi
Dry Mouth Treatment at Sussex Dental Dry mouth, or often called ‘cotton mouth’ is when your mouth is not generating enough saliva and as a result your mouth is uncomfortably dry. This can create issues with swallowing, eating, speech and can just be flat-out an uncomfortable and embarrassing experience. Long-term, this can also bring bigger issues as saliva is meant to clean the mouth of bacteria and disease.

The first course of action you should take is to contact your dentist and let them know what is going on. While it can be daunting to go to the dentist, it could end up being an easy fix, getting you back to living life dry mouth free. In the meantime, there are some things that you can do to alleviate any discomfort, although some methods may only bring brief relief.

•  Brushing your teeth: by brushing your teeth you are putting toothpaste in your mouth, hopefully triggering your mouth to add saliva to fight bacteria.
•  Adding flavor to your water: water does not always activate saliva to happen because it has not taste. Adding something of flavor to plain water could help on a short-term basis
•  Over-the-counter mouthwash specifically for dry mouth. Found at any local store, there are a few options that are specifically created to combat dry mouth
•  Chewing gum and lozenges specifically for dry mouth. Like the mouth wash, there are more on-the-go options for people to use until they can consult a dentist. These forms are in chewing gum and lozenges.

While these are only temporary fixes, they could help you get through until you can get an appointment with your dentist to talk about dry mouth. Remember, while it may be a small nuisance now, it could end up being a much bigger problem in the future if not addressed correctly.
