Dry mouth is a symptom that leads to a lack of saliva. Individuals with dry mouth do not have enough saliva to keep the mouth wet.

Remedies - there are many ways to keep the mouth lubricated and prevent the symptoms of dry mouth:

  • suck on sugar-free candy or chew sugar-free gum, specifically ones with xylitol. Try to avoid acidic ones like lemon that can soften teeth.
  • drink plenty of water to help keep your mouth moist.
  • brush with a fluoride toothpaste, use a fluoride rinse, and visit your dentist regularly.
  • breathe through your nose, not your mouth, as much as possible.
  • use a room vaporizer to add moisture to the bedroom air.
  • use an over-the-counter artificial saliva substitute
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult a specialist & get answers to your questions!
