About 5 weeks ago I started having slight dry mouth as time went on it gradually got worse. I tried chewing sugar free gum but it only helps so much?

In brief: Many possible causes

A dry mouth can be caused by a variety of medicines, anxiety, dehydration, etc.
Radiation therapy can also be a cause. If it doesn't go away you should see a doctor. Without more information I'm afraid I can't be very helpful.
