Quick list: Reduced salivary flow can happen for a lot of reasons. This list is probably not comprehensive but: age, medications, radiation, auto immune diseases....

Anything else shrunk: At your age it could be many things. To diagnose, more symptoms are needed. Medication, especially multiple meds is a problem for decreased salivary flow. How do you know they are shrunken, \? A thorough diagnosis by a dentist or oral surgeon is a start to see if they are truly shrunk!
