Living with dry mouth

About this information

This information has been produced to inform and offer suggestions for people who have a dry mouth and those caring for someone with a dry mouth. Dry mouth often means you can no longer eat the food you usually do and this makes choosing food difficult. 

The information has sections on food choices and preparation tips, many of which have been contributed by people with a dry mouth. 

This information is a general guide and it is not intended to replace advice from your doctor, dentist, or registered dietitian. If you have questions about your condition or the quality of your diet, please consult your doctor, dentist, or registered dietitian.
