i went for my dental checkup last week. the dentist said that my teeth are already weakening from having a dry mouth. he said that normal saliva helps to keep the teeth clean and free from harmful bacteria but, now that i don't have much saliva, my teeth could decay very fast. i am trying to maintain a more strict cleaning program at home but i'm concerned that it won't be enough. have any of you been having this problem? also, do any of you have any suggestions on what i can do to nip the problem in the bud before it gets worse. just hoping for some info other than what my dentist already gave me. thanks!
