Guidelines for Healthy Teeth in Later Years, from Mountain View CA Dentist Dr. Patrick McEvoy DDS


Seniors often suffer from dry mouth. This is more than an inconvenience, says Mountain View, CA dentist Dr. McEvoy. This may seem like a minor inconvenience, but actually saliva contains calcium and phosphates that help protect teeth from weakness and decay. It’s not natural to suffer from dry mouth. It’s a condition most commonly caused by the side effects of medications. A dentist can recommend solutions ranging from a simple reminder, to drink more water, to recommending that the patient work with their medical advisor to explore alternative medication options.
