Why Am I Experiencing Dry Mouth at Night?
What is Dry Mouth?
Dry mouth is a common medical condition also known as xerostomia. This condition reduces saliva production leaving your mouth dry and creating oral discomfort. Even though you may feel generally unpleasant from the dry mouth at night, you may experience other health complications such as bad breath, poor oral hygiene, and even painful mouth sores.
In addition to these complications, experiencing dry mouth symptoms at night may lead to poor sleep and inadequate rest. Ultimately, dry mouth at night can create a poor quality of life and leave you feeling exhausted during the day.
Unfortunately, your evening dry mouth symptoms can affect your overall health. Saliva is crucial to keep your oral cavity moist and lubricated, and a lack of saliva at night can keep you up. Not to mention the overall benefits of saliva for your systemic health, such as preventing cavity formation and fighting oral bacteria. Don’t be a victim of dry mouth at night!
Causes of Dry Mouth
There are medical and non-medical causes that may result in dry mouth symptoms at night. Some causes are:
Why Does My Mouth Feel Even Drier at Night?
In addition to these common causes of dry mouth, some people experience even more uncomfortable symptoms during the evening and have dry mouth at night. This can be caused by snoring, breathing through your mouth, sleep apnea, dehydration, and late-night alcohol consumption. Mouth breathing and sleep apnea can make your mouth even drier by allowing air into your oral cavity while sleeping.
The Importance of a Good Night’s Sleep
Feeling groggy and unmotivated after an unrestful night is something most, if not all of us, would like to avoid. Similarly, inadequate sleep can negatively affect your concentration and productivity. This can leave you feeling distracted, indecisive, and even irritable.
Likewise, a lack of sleep can increase your likelihood of certain health complications such as obesity, high blood pressure, and even heart disease. Restful, uninterrupted sleep is crucial for your overall health.
Some people who experience dry mouth at night drink more water at night as well, which may cause frequent evening bathroom trips.
Don’t let dry mouth keep you up all night!
