Given the highly individualized nature of Dry Mouth, we think it important to present our patients with a variety of treatment options. We’ve done some research and come up with a collection of products that have been well-tested and reviewed in the hopes that some combination of the below will help to alleviate each of our patient’s symptoms. Above and beyond looking for positive reviews from forums, online communities and dental professionals, we sought out products that used either Xylitol or Fluoride, ingredients that can stimulate saliva production and reduce the risk of decay. Please let us know which of these products winds up working for you!
