If You Experience Dry Mouth At Night

If you wake up with a parched throat often, you may be suffering from dry mouth — a condition that could have a negative impact on your oral health. Here’s how to manage the symptoms.

Key takeaways:

  • Avoid eating salty foods in the evening and before bed time.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. 
  • Switch to a mouthwash that doesn’t contain alcohol.

If the problem persists, make an appointment with your dentist to find out what’s causing it and whether it’s affecting your teeth.
