Dry mouth, what to do when you have it

Dry mouth is not a normal part of aging. If you have dry mouth, talk to your dentist or doctor. Dry mouth can be a sign of certain diseases or can be caused by certain medications or the result of medical treatments. If you have dry mouth:

  • don’t use tobacco or drink alcohol 

  • drink water regularly—with and between meals

  • avoid drinks that contain caffeine such as colas, coffee and tea since it can dry out your mouth

  • chew sugarless gum or suck on sugarless candy to stimulate saliva flow 

  • avoid spicy or salty foods if they cause pain in your mouth
