Thanks for writing to us.

Drooling of saliva while sleeping is due to the habit of mouth breathing,Incomplete lip seal while sleeping.

I would advice you to get a thorough evaluation.

Get a thorough scaling done.

Infected carious tooth has to be restored.

Pus has to be drained if any.

Antibiotics-analgesics has to be administered to prevent infection.

Hope this helps.
