Back-to-School Vision Care

It is not unusual for the refractive status of eyes to change up to age 18, but these changes are more likely during the early growth years. Young kids might not readily notice problems at a time when 80% of what they learn is through the eyes. In addition, eye muscle imbalances can affect reading and concentration, both of which are important for academic success and a confident student.

Dentures and Dry Mouth

Dry mouth is a condition that involves the salivary glands not producing enough saliva to adequately keep the mouth moistened. This lack of saliva can alter the fit and comfort of dentures, since saliva helps dentures retain their suction and stay in place and also has a lubricating effect that keeps dentures from rubbing on the gums and creating sores. Those who take certain medications, are older, use tobacco and alcohol, or snore while they sleep, are more susceptible to dry mouth. If you’re experiencing dry mouth symptoms as a denture-wearer, contact your denturist to discuss your options.
