If you believe you’re experiencing the symptoms of xerostomia, there are a few things that you should do to prep for your checkup. Firstly, take note of the feelings you’ve been experiencing and when you’re feeling them, and be ready to tell Dr. Leo Eliezer about them when they ask you. Secondly, write a list of all the medications you’re presently taking and all the times you’ve received radiation procedures. These two things will be a vast aid during your visit.

If you have any of the following risk factors for xerostomia, please let us know. Dry mouth is most common in adults older than 55 years old; more than 40% of this age group suffer from xerostomia symptoms. Additionally, women are more at risk than men.
