Prob?: Not sure that you really have one. Saliva is your best friend when it comes to preventing decay and keeping a healthy mouth. You may just not be swallowing it like normal. There is a slight chance that you could have an issue with one or more of you salivary glands and it doesn't hurt to have it checked out so see your dentist if you cont to have concerns.
