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.

A friendly warning from your dentist! Dry mouth can easily increase your chances of gum disease, tooth decay and mouth infections so if you discover that your dry mouth continues despite these tips and tricks, contact CGS Dentistry, your Coquitlam dentist, as soon as possible.
