Hello Lybrate user. For dry mouth, Drink plenty of water, consider chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugar-free candies to help stimulate salivary flow. There also are artificial saliva’s on the market that may help to induce salivation. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion.
