Most medications cause a reduction in saliva production.
Diet and the amount of liquid intake also has a direct effect in saliva production.

In brief: Medications

Medications are a major cause of dry mouth.
Dry mouth can cause tooth decay so make sure you see your dentist regularly. Avoid acidic and sugary foods and drinks. Keep our mouth hydrated with water, chewing xylitol or sugar free gum.
