Diagnose cause first: The best way to treat your dry mouth depends on what's causing it. There are some things you can do that will give temporary relief, but the best long-term remedy is to address the cause. Chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugar-free hard candies will help stimulate saliva production. Hydrate often, and try over-the-counter saliva substitutes.Such as biotene oral balance.
