Bellow advices might help you Increase your fluid intake. Drinking lots of fluids, particularly water, helps to reduce dry mouth. Stimulate saliva flow. Sugarless gum or hard candies can boost saliva flow. Because Sjogren's syndrome increases your risk of dental cavities, limit sweets, especially between meals. Lemon juice in water also can help stimulate saliva flow. Try artificial saliva.
