Hello there... There are various reasons for that...Please mention your age? ...Since you have already got yourself examined from a dental surgeon the other reason could be from the upper respiratory tract...Salty discharge could happen if you have upper respiratory tract infections.Post nasal discharge that runs down through your nasopharynx would taste salty...and you would appreciate it more when you lie in the supine position .. Person with chronic sinusitis would also have bad breadth from their mouth... If the dental examination has ruled out your problem visit an ENT for further evaluation or visit a Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for further management.
