Do you drool when you sleep?
Did you wake up?
I found that the pillows were wet
Could it be that I dreamed of eating good things
Still sleeping so fragrant?
Children have weak mouth strength, teeth can’t stop their teeth, immature saliva swallowing ability, and drooling when sleeping is normal, but why do adults drool?
Generally speaking, the amount of saliva secretion of healthy adults is roughly 0.5 ~ 1 liter every day (you read it right, there are as many mineral water about 1 to 3 bottles of mineral water), even if there is no food or other external factors,Each hour also secrete about 30 ml of saliva.
Xiong Yanhua, deputy chief physician of the Department of Medicine of Zhejiang Hospital, explained that when people sleep, the human cerebral cortex will receive some signals, thereby reducing the secretion of saliva in the mouth, and driving saliva to the esophagus. If there is a lot of saliva when sleeping,It is likely to be caused by other reasons.
The most common reason is the sleeping position. Due to gravity when lying and lying on the side and prone, it will compress the parotid glands and increase the saliva secretion. In addition, the half -side face is pressed at this time.
But there are still some diseases that can induce drooling during sleep. If these are the following situations, be careful.
These will also make you flourish
01 oral disease
Tooth decay, oral ulcers, tonsillitis, dentures are not suitable, etc., they will stimulate excessive saliva secretion of the oral cavity. In addition, swallowing during sleep is reduced, and saliva is "flooded into disaster".
The occlusal is not right. For example, the teeth and the ground can cause the mouth to be difficult to close naturally. After falling asleep, the muscles are relaxed.
02 Stomach esophageal reflux disease
The gastroesophageal reflux disease can be simply understood as food, stomach acid and other contents in the stomach, and flowing back to the esophagus and other parts of the stomach.
The abnormal gastric acid may cause excessive reflexual secretion of saliva, so some patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease will experience excessive saliva symptoms.
In addition, gastroesophageal reflux disease also has symptoms such as heartburne, acid reflux, chest pain.
The rhinoma hypertrophy, nasal polyps, chronic rhinitis, allergic rhinitis, and nasal congestion caused by colds will not make the respiratory tract unsatisfactory. After falling asleep, people will unconsciously use their mouth to replace the nose.
In general, in addition to drooling, snoring, waking up in the morning may occur.
04 Parkinson disease
Parkinson’s disease is a "aging" disease that slowly occurs in a specific area of the brain. It will affect multiple aspects of the body, including chewing and swallowing function.
After suffering from Parkinson’s disease, the swallowing function will deteriorate and cannot swallow the mouth in time; some nerve damage will cause excessive saliva, so patients with Parkinson’s disease can easily drool.
Hands, feet shake, decline in their feet, decline in their feet, have difficulty in activity, dysfunction, constipation, and poor temper is also Parkinson’s early symptoms. Discover these conditions, it is recommended to go to the neurology clinic. The earlier, the more you can control the condition.
In addition, pregnancy and some nervous system drugs may also make the population more water.
Try to do so

02 Treatment of oral disease

It is also recommended to correct it in time, because it will not only lead to drooling, but also cause unevenness of the teeth. The pressure is concentrated on some teeth, increasing the risk of loose teeth and gum injury.
03 Improving gastroesophageal reflux
If acid, heart burning, and chest pain may occur, the gastroesophageal reflux may be required, but the doctor is required to evaluate it, which can be improved through the following methods.
Raise the bedside (note that it is not a pillow) to form a slope of about 15 ° ~ 20 °;
Quit smoking, try not to eat high sugar, high -fat, strong tea coffee, chocolate, etc.
