... is swollen... I get plaque on my teeth quickly and thickly... I am in pre-menopause but is this a normal symptom of that?
Hi purrminator - I am not familiar with dry mouth being a result of or caused by peri-menopause. But, I would definitely ask my Dentist because a persistent dry mouth can cause all kinds of problems... faster tooth decay, gum disease, etc. It sounds more like it may be caused by a medication. Please check your medications, if you are taking any, to see if that is the case. You can use Biotin, which comes in the form of toothpaste, mouth wash, mouth spray, etc. because it has enzymes that aid the mouth in creating more saliva. You definitely don't want more disease as you go through menopause! Good luck! Jillian
Yes, menopause has different symptoms and women get to suffer from different symptoms. Usually women who complain of dry mouth have been reported to undergo stress, depression and high blood pressure. You should maintain healthy lifestyle, change your diet by avoiding hot, spicy foods. Have a good night sleep for eight hours. Meditation or yoga is effective to relief the stress caused in pre-menopause. Trying an alternative supplement for menopause relief will help you.
