Mouth-breathing? You may have a condition known as dry mouth which may be helped with artificial saliva and sucking on sugarless lemon drop. There are medications to stimulate saliva production also. If you breathe through your mouth due to nasal obstruction, relieving the nasal obstruction may re-channel the air passage. Biotin mouthwash, toothpaste may be helpful.
