Dangers of Dry Mouth



  • What is better for someone with Sjogrens? Dentures or implants? Does anyone specialize in providing dental care for people (me) who have Sjogrens? ...Visitor from TX    (answer)

  • I have been diagnosed with Sjogrens approximately 2 years ago and so have a dry mouth to contend with which is helped greatly with olive oil! A couple weeks ago I had an outbreak of oral shingles and in the last couple days noticed that I have a boil on the gum above the left incisor. It was lanced today by my dentist, and he says that I have an abcess and need a root canal. Last year I had very severe pain on the side of my face and sinuses, went to the dentist and was advised that I needed a root canal. I went to the specialist, and he advised me that I did not need a root canal, but rather my sinuses were infected. I am not concerned that my sinuses might be infected again---have been doing some very serious house work involving lots of dust,etc cleaning the attic. I don't want to have an unneccesary root canal, yet my dentist today took Xrays and told me that the tooth in question has been dead since I was a child (now am 55). Because I also am allergic to oral antibiotics, I am in a precarious situation. The bottom line is, I have NO PAIN on the gum or in the tooth and no sensitivity to a "cold" tests that the dentist gave me today. I have had a root canal in the past and it really played havoc with my immune system. Don't abcesses of a tooth ususally involve pain and sensitivity to hot and cold? Couldn't I just have a boil on my gum from the outbreak of shingles in my mouth a couple weeks ago and not necessarily have an abcessed tooth? ...Joy in VA     (answer)

  • Loss of Enamel from Sjogren's: Is there a treatment or something the dentist can use on teeth to help prevent further enamel erosion and tooth decay? ...Visitor from MI    (answer)
