September is ADHD Awareness Month: ADHD/Dental Hygiene

Did you know?   Many medications that treat ADHD can cause dry mouth, creating a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and putting you at higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease.  Talk with your dentist and dental hygienist if you are experiencing dry mouth symptoms.  Your dental team can treat dry mouth, clean your teeth, and look for cavities and evidence of gum disease.
