What is Sjogren’s Syndrome?

By: Smileway Dental

Sjogren’s syndrome is a condition which affects normal functions of specific parts of the body involved in producing fluids like tear and salivary glands. It is an autoimmune disorder.

Patients with this condition experience dryness of eyes and mouth. They are unable to secrete tears when crying which requires them to express emotions with words rather than action.

Signs of dry mouth

  • Food frequently getting stuck in mouth or throat
  • Tongue gets stuck to roof of mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing food

There are no permanent cures for Sjogren’s syndrome but we are able to alleviate the symptoms by

  • Using eye drops or salivary substitutes to prevent mouth from being dry and helps maintain moisture.

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
