About Xerostomia

Xerostomia, or dry mouth, is the result of decreased salivary flow and is a symptom of a number of underlying conditions. Causes of dry mouth include Sjogren's syndrome; radiation treatment to the head and neck; and HIV-related salivary gland disease. Xerostomia can also be a side effect of medications and is associated with aging.
