Maintaining regular mouth hygiene is important.

  • Artificial saliva may be of benefit. Discuss with your doctor.

  • Choose moist foods and moisten other foods with extra gravy/sauces/liquids.

  • Keep fluids on hand. Sip liquids frequently to moisten the mouth (carry a drink bottle).

  • Stimulate your saliva. Chewing gum, mints or lemon drops may help.

  • Avoid hot beverages and alcohol. They can have a drying effect on the mouth.
