The Causes of Dry Mouth

There are various causes of dry mouth. It can be a condition resulting from certain medications, a problem with your salivary glands not working properly, disease or nerve damage.

Some immediate solutions are to avoid coffee or caffiene drinks, sip a good amount of water and sugarless liquids, especially during meals, stay away from salty foods and avoid tobacco and alcohol.
