Check seal: Has your tongue checked by someone who studies airway wellness? There has been growing awareness in airway health among both medical and dental professionals, so find someone who can assess your airway function. Swallowing saliva requires the tongue to be free from being tongue-tied. If you have a mild tongue-tie, your speech may not be affected but swallowing may be. It could be dry mouth, also.
