Dry mouth: You may be sleeping with your mouth open even if you don't know it and for at least part of the time. Some medications cause dry mouth. When was you last dental and medical check-up? Dry mouth promotes cavities. Make sure you brush and floss properly for two minutes before you go to sleep.
