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.”

I have been seeing Dr. Patel since he was in Orland/Palos when I was a teenager. I continued to see him at his practice in Romeoville after he moved. I have never had any issues with him as my dentist and feel adequately cared for. My husband and children also come to this practice.

The dental hygienist that does our cleanings, Lou, is a gem. My children also sometimes see Dr. Nina and we love her. When you call in or check out, Leslie is friendly and pleasant.
