Why do I have dry mouth?

Dry mouth, or xerostomia, can be caused by numerous things. Traditionally, dry mouth was thought to only inflict older patients, but today we are seeing dry mouth in younger and younger patients. The reason we are seeing more cases of dry mouth and cases in younger patients is due to adverse side effects of many common medications. Dry mouth is very detrimental to the oral environment and can lead to aggressive decay.
