I wouldnt say that it is unusally dry however i am constantly chewing on chewing gum & i have noticed that sometimes by gum sticks to my bottom teeth if i am not chewing on chewing gum. When i brush though im spitting out alot of thick saliva & my tounge can sometimes have a sting sensation. ENT thought the thick saliva was due to the bad taste. When i go for dental check up my mouth fills up with saliva (you know when you need to spit out) so im not sure if this is the problem?
I had a CT scan a couple of years ago when i first went to the doctor.. firstly one ENT said i would benefit from a septoplasty for a slight deviated septum (when i went private the doc said there was no need & i had tonsillectomy). It showed a slight blockage on the opposite side of my sinus' but he said this would not be a major problem, Also showed i had a slight build up of mucus which and his advise was to just sinus rinse everyday which i do. I have tried liquid chlorophyll drinking it before meals but it didnt help, have also tried rinsing with grape fruit seed extract which again didnt help. Would i go to doctor or dentist about Sjogrens syndrome?
