How to Boost Your Saliva Production
If you are suffering from dry mouth, you may be interested in ways that you can boost your saliva production to keep your teeth safe and breath fresh. Try following a few of these steps:

• Chew on sugar-free gum. This can stimulate your salivary glands.
• Eat foods that are high in fiber, such as crunchy fruits and vegetables.
• Limit your alcohol consumption, as alcohol will dry out the mouth.
• Try oil-pulling, oil-pulling has shown to help boost saliva production
• drink lots of water; even if you've tried everything and still have dry mouth, water can help flush food and bacteria out of the mouth for you.

Hopefully some of these tips will work for you. If you have any dry mouth concerns feel free to call us anytime, we'd be happy to discuss these and more options more thoroughly with you!
