What is the treatment of Dry Mouth?
The treatment of dry mouth depends on addressing its underlying cause. If medication side effects are to blame, your doctor may adjust the dosage or switch to an alternative. For issues related to reduced saliva production from the salivary glands, your dentist might prescribe medications to stimulate saliva secretion.

Persistent dry mouth may require additional measures, such as:

– Using mouth moisturizers or saliva substitutes.
– Using mouthwashes specifically designed for dry mouth relief.
– Regularly sipping water or sugarless drinks.
– Steering clear of caffeine-containing beverages like coffee, tea, and certain sodas.
– Stimulating saliva flow by chewing sugarless gum or sucking on sugarless hard candy (if salivary glands are still functional).
– Avoiding tobacco and alcohol.
– Steer clear of spicy or salty foods that can exacerbate dry mouth discomfort.
– Employing a humidifier at night to alleviate dryness.
