Dry Mouth Sufferers Get Sealants Saving Grace

About one-third of the adult population suffers from dry mouth...

Consider asking your dentist to apply sealants to your teeth, reports the Academy of General Dentistry, an organization of general dentists dedicated to continuing dental education.

Dry mouth can be caused by medication, irradiation, stress, autoimmune disease, or neurological factors, and adult patients who experience dry mouth would benefit the most from sealants.
