Do you suffer from seasonal allergies?  If you are taking allergy medication you may also experience dry mouth which is one of the most common side effects of these medicines.  Unfortunately dry mouth can also cause bad breath, increase the risk of tooth decay and gingivitis.  Here are a few ways to beat the unpleasantness of dry mouth.

1. Brush at least twice a day with Biotene fluroide toothpaste.  You can also use other Biotene products like the oral rinse, moisturizing gel, and mouth spray.

2. Try to breathe through your nose especially while you are sleeping.

3. Keep a water bottle handy at all times.

4. Limit coffee and alcohol as they tend to dehydrate you.

Our blog from July of last year "Dry Mouth" has more information on causes and symptoms.
