Dry Mouth Treatment

Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)

Saliva is essential for overall wellness. Saliva enzymes promote quality breathing, digestion, immunity, and oral health. When the body produces inadequate saliva (a healthy amount of saliva production for adults is about 2 liters per day), the body can be negatively impacted in many ways.

Common causes of dry mouth (xerostomia) may include:

  • Prescription medication
  • Nerve damage from mouth injury
  • Smoking
  • Chemotherapy and radiation
  • Dehydration

Dry mouth may also lead to one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Dental caries (cavities), increased plaque, and higher risk of tooth decay
  • Oral candidiasis (also called oral thrush or oral candidosis)
  • Inflammation of gums and mucosa (mucosa is the tissue that lines nose, mouth, lungs, urinary and digestive tracts)
  • Difficulty speaking, eating, swallowing, and tasting food
  • Painful tongue and taste disorders
  • Burning and stinging in the mouth
  • Constant or persistent sore or scratchy throat and nasal passages
  • Difficulty wearing dentures
  • Bad breath (halitosis)

Ways to alleviate symptoms of dry mouth include:

  • Drinking more water
  • Chewing sugar-free gum sweetened with xylitol to promote saliva production and clean teeth
  • Breathing through the nose rather than the mouth
  • Using a humidifier
  • Avoid taking antihistamines or decongestants
  • Giving up cigarettes and caffeinated beverages
