Solutions and Treatment
Consult with your doctor to find out whether your dry mouth is a result of medication or an underlying medical condition. If not, try to identify the cause by reviewing your daily routine. Address any unhealthy smoking and drinking habits, and make sure your mouth remains hydrated by drinking water throughout the day.
Avoid foods with a high sugar or spice content, and acidic foods that can aggravate tooth decay. You can also chew sugarless xylitol gum or candy to stimulate the production of saliva in your mouth while freshening your breath.
Your dentist may also recommend products such as saliva substitutes that you can use to replace the moisture in your mouth, or saliva stimulants such as Natrol Dry Mouth Relief, which comes in the form of lozenges that you can dissolve in your mouth three times a day.
