Dry Mouth Causes & Treatment

Dry mouth can occur for a number of reasons such as dehydration, medication, and medical conditions. The lack of normal salvia flow needs to be monitored to ensure it does not become a more serious issue.

As for treatment of dry mouth, we would recommend speaking with your dentist if the issue persists. Below are a few home remedies that may help:

- As obvious as it may sound, drink extra water!

- Brush your teeth at least twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste

- Floss daily
