In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month in October, let’s talk about an issue that affects the oral health of nearly 40 million adults and 4.7 million middle and high school students in the United States: smoking and tobacco use.

Causes of Dry Mouth

We’ve all had a little taste of dry mouth at some point in our lives – ever woken up with morning breath?
