If you suffer from dry mouth in the summer or any other time, your Coquitlam dentist at CGS Dentistry has some useful suggestions on what you can do to soothe your dry mouth symptoms and feel better, no matter the season!
Offer Yourself a Mint or Two
If you experience dry mouth, try a sugar-free mint, ideally one that has an anti-bad breath flavour such as spearmint. Mints should help encourage saliva production and as a bonus, you get minty-fresh breath!
Drink Plenty of Water
Water is ideal for promoting saliva production and comes with countless benefits for your oral and general wellness. If you find that your mouth is getting dry, make sure to always carry a water bottle with you and sip accordingly.
Eat Lots of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
If your mouth is dry, grab fruits and veggies to snack on and keep your mouth – and the rest of yourself – in great health.
