Drinking Water for Dry Mouth

Drinking water is a temporary solution for your dry mouth.

If your mouth feels dry it may seem like a natural response to drink more water. However water does not perform in the same way as our natural saliva.  Saliva does a lot more than just provide moisture, it also lubricates the insides of the mouth and teeth, which is key in relieving symptoms of dry mouth.

Dry mouth is very rarely connected to being dehydrated so drinking a lot of water will only provide a temporary relief.  Drinking too much water could however, lead to other conditions such as hyponatremia, where the sodium in your blood is diluted and overwhelms the kidney’s compensation mechanism.

Oralieve have a range of products that will help you manage your dry mouth during your daily oral health routine as well as some easy to carry relief products for when you are out and about.  Go to our products page to find out more about the Oralieve range.
