In brief: Dry Mouth
Sudden onset of dry mouth can be caused by many things, most common being medications.
Saliva is very important to the health of the oral cavity and prevention of decay. If you have started a new medication ask your doctor if this is a normal and temporary side effect. There are many products to help with dry mouth. If dry mouth persists see your dentist.

In brief: Possibly
A minimal amount of saliva is considered dry mouth, which can be caused by a number of things ranging from using an alcohol mouthwash to medications to radiation therapy.
See your doc to determine what the underlying cause is. Generally, the saliva itself is ok, your glands are producing less of it...Try using a dry mouth rinse, there are several otc brands...
