Prevent Dry Mouth While Sleeping


Dry mouth is a condition associated with a lack of saliva within the mouth. Often occurring during the overnight hours, dry mouth can lead to issues with the teeth and gums due to an accumulation of bacteria.

You can take a few steps to prevent dry mouth. For instance, avoid using mouthwashes that contain alcohol — and reduce your salt intake during the evening hours.

Here are three other useful suggestions:

  • Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  • If possible, try not to sleep with your mouth open.
  • Speak with a doctor if you suspect that any medications may be causing dry mouth.

Thankfully, dry mouth can normally be addressed with few issues. If the problem continues, consult with your dentist or doctor. More options may be available.

“It’s natural for people to experience dry mouth at night, especially because they aren’t drinking anything during the hours that they’re asleep.”
