    1. I think Kim is right don't brush your teeth so much or so hard. Use a softer toothbrush. You could cause your gums to recede doing that and then you'd have issues from that. Can cause pain and sensitivity . You should def see a dentist. Dry mouth can be a sign of sicca syndrome or Sjogren's. Do get it checked out.

    hi yes I agree. But those symptoms ca. point to something underlying. My sister has sicca syndrome and was plagued with thrush same way. Took quite some time to get it under control.
