Why Do I Have Dry Mouth at Night?

By    |   Tuesday, 03 Feb 2015 11:30 AM

Question: I have dry mouth, but only at night. What could be causing it, and is there anything I can do about it?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer: 
 
A dry mouth can be caused by a whole slew of conditions, starting with mouth breathing, medication, or dehydration. But it can also be due to more serious conditions such as immune disorders and salivary gland dysfunction.

You should make an appointment with your dentist to review your oral hygiene. You can also consult your primary physician for further evaluation and guidance, or even a referral to a specialist, if necessary.
