You Will Need

  • Tart or sour candy
  • Saliva
  • Tongue flexibility
  • Yawning (optional)


  1. Step 1

    Suck on candy

    Suck on a piece of tart candy to stimulate saliva flow. Get a roll of tart fruit candy or other sour candy so you have plenty to practice with.

  2. Yawning is also a good technique to generate saliva.

  3. Step 2

    Make an O

    Make your mouth into a small O shape and take a deep breath in through your mouth. This will help saliva collect under your tongue.

  4. Step 3

    Position the tongue

    Position the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth directly in the center and open your mouth wide.

  5. Jut out your jaw so that it is slightly forward.

  6. Step 4

    Breathe again

    Keep your tongue in position and breathe in again through your mouth to deepen the saliva pool.

  7. Step 5

    Flex tongue

    Flex your tongue forward, keeping the tip locked to the roof of the mouth. The saliva should stream straight out or spray out in several directions.

  8. The medical term for dry mouth is xerostomia. The condition can lead to gingivitis, tooth decay, and mouth infections.
