What is dry mouth, and what does it mean?

Dry mouth happens when the glands that produce saliva aren’t working well. It’s also called xerostomia or hyposalivation. It’s not considered an official diagnosable condition, but it’s sometimes a symptom of another condition.

Why Do I Get Dry Mouth at Night?

Dry mouth (xerostomia) might seem like an annoying thing that happens at night from time to time. But if it occurs regularly, it needs to be treated. Left untreated, it can affect a variety of things, including eating, speaking, and your general oral health.

Saliva is necessary for tooth and gum health, and enzymes in saliva help aid in digestion. If your mouth is dry throughout the night, your oral health might be affected without you even knowing it.

Symptoms of persistent dry mouth at night can include:

thick or stringy saliva
bad breath
changes in your sense of taste
issues while wearing dentures
difficulty chewing or swallowing
sore throat
grooved tongue
What Causes Dry Throat, and How Is It Treated?

A dry, scratchy throat is a common symptom — especially during the cold winter months when the air is dry and upper respiratory infections are spreading. Usually, a dry throat is a sign of something minor, like dryness in the air or a head cold.

Salty Taste in Mouth

Do you have a salty taste in your mouth when you wake up for the day? Or even when you haven’t eaten anything salty? You may be wondering what’s going on. This strange sensation is actually quite common.

Sign of Dry Mouth

A sticky, dry feeling in the mouth along with frequent thirst. Sores in the mouth or split skin at the corners of the mouth along with cracked lips. A dry feeling in the throat. A burning or tingling sensation in the mouth especially on the tongue.
