Get a thorough check up done of your teeth and your body.. Dry mouth or Xerostomia is caused by many things such as lack of proper hydration in your body..  It can be  caused by several medications that one may take..  or it could be subjective dry mouth without an actual drop of salivation. Plz get a check up done I repeat..  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre...  Chewing gums, getting total oral prophylaxis done,  using mouthwashes may help,  but diagnose the problem first...

Hi there...I can understand your concern. Bad breath could be due to abnormal microbial flora of three mouth or any underlying dormant infections of the tonsils, adenoid gland. You will require detailed oral cavity and upper respiratory tract examination. So kindly consult a nearby Ent specialist for further evaluation...
