The Right Treatment for You Depends on the Cause
If your dry mouth is a side effect of a certain medication, your doctor may recommend switching to a different prescription or changing your dose.
Mouthwashes or Moisturizers
There are a variety of products available to lubricate the inside of your mouth. Your dentist may recommend a prescription or over-the-counter mouthwash designed for dry mouth, artificial saliva, or a moisturizer.
Certain prescription medications, such as pilocarpine and cevimeline, can help stimulate saliva production.
If snoring or sleep apnea is at the root of your dry mouth, your dentist may fit you with a custom mouthguard to help you breathe through your nose throughout the night.
