Dry mouth is a dental issue that involves a dry, cottony feeling in the mouth. It oftentimes feels like it’s difficult to quench your thirst. If you suffer from dry mouth, our doctors, Drs. Baaqee and Baaqee, are happy to help you. Fortunately, there are things you can do to lessen your symptoms and help your dry mouth. Those things are:
-Frequently sip on water or sugar-free liquids: If you sip on water and sugar-free liquids throughout the day, then your mouth can remain moist and you can even wash harmful bacteria and acid away, which can help you avoid dental issues. Just make sure the liquid you’re sipping on does not contain sugar or acid.
-Chew sugar-free gum: Chewing sugar-free gum can help improve your saliva flow. This is because the natural response to chewing is saliva production. So, try to chew sugar-free gum after each meal. It’s best that it’s sugar free so it doesn’t cause dental issues as you chew.
-Use over-the-counter, artificial saliva: Over-the-counter, artificial saliva usually comes in the form of a liquid or aerosol. All you need to do is frequently spray it in your mouth. This can moisten the mouth and lessen any dry mouth discomfort you feel.
