Seeing a Doctor or Dentist. If you have trouble easing your dry mouth symptoms on your own, it would be beneficial to visit your doctor or dentist. Your dry mouth may be caused by an underlying condition or a medication you are taking. Sharing your concerns about dry mouth with your dentist or doctor can help determine the best treatment plan to ease your symptoms. In addition, speaking with a doctor or dentist can determine if your dry mouth should be addressed by changing medications or treating an underlying condition.
