User :   Dear Dr,
I'm 17 years old and it has been 4 years and i have Excessive Saliva In The Mouth during my sleep, it doesn't drip it only gathers in my mouth frequently
and when i try to get rid of the saliva it gathers again immediately. The only way to stop it is to brush my teeth. I tried eating less at night and eating nothing. Also, i've changed my toothpaste but nothing worked.

P.S: i'm not on any medications, i don't have allergy or Blockage in the nose.
