Thick Saliva in Mouth?


Thick saliva in the mouth is usually caused by dry mouth. Dry mouth is the result of using prescription or over the counter medications that change the amount of water that is coming and going out of your mouth. If you don't treat the dry mouth problem, you will continue to have thick saliva and also run the risk of tooth decay, oral yeast infections, and gum disease. Make sure you are working on keeping your mouth wet and see if you can switch medications or cut back on ones that dry out your mouth.
