In the News: 12 Medications That Cause Dry Mouth (and How to Treat It)

Dr. Umang Patel was recently quoted in the article, “12 Medications That Cause Dry Mouth (and How to Treat It),” published on SingleCare.com.

Here’s an excerpt from the article from Dr. Umang Patel:

“It’s important to keep your appointments every six months with your dentist if you are experiencing dry mouth because it can cause tooth decay,” says Umang Patel, DDS, a dentist who practices at Romeoville Dental Center and Palos Heights Family Dental in the Chicago area. “Saliva washes away bacteria from the teeth, and in dry mouths, the bacteria will sit on the teeth and cause cavities. If you have tried several methods to avoid experiencing dry mouth because of your medication, it’s worth scheduling an appointment with your doctor to see if you can switch to medications that don’t have such severe side effects.”

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
