Are you a victim of dry mouth? If so, you likely experience a sticky or dry feeling in the mouth, trouble chewing and swallowing, a burning feeling in the mouth, cracked lips, mouth sores, bad breath, cavities and more. Dry mouth can be quite the irritating and troublesome dental problem. Fortunately, our dentist, Dr. Mehrnaz Iranmehr has the tips you need to relieve your dry mouth! Those tips are:
