Hello Baso In Kuah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The condition that you experience or known as drooling by the community is a normal condition for babies / children. If it occurs in adulthood is a result of:
The state of dry mouth: for example due to open mouth during sleep, lack of drinking before going to sleep, this triggers excessive saliva production.
Sleeping on his stomach
Tooth and gum problems: for example cavities, inflammation of the gums
Anatomy of the mouth that is not normal, for example, the tongue is too big
To prevent this, you can do the following:
Drink enough water before going to bed to prevent dry mouth
Keeping your mouth open during sleep: for example by raising your head while sleeping, sleep facing right / left
Avoid sleeping on your stomach and supine position (supine position can cause the tongue and soft palate to relax and fall backward to make breathing during sleep less good / can arise "snoring").
Take care of oral hygiene by brushing your teeth 2 times a day.
Regular exercise 3-5 times a week (@ 30 minutes)
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Saline nasal spray / irigation: or wash your nose with NaCl (can be obtained at pharmacies) to maintain airway moisture, relieve breathing, and reduce the risk of breathing through the mouth.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
