You most probably have blocked sinusses, that forces you to breath through your mouth, causing the dry mouth. Certain metabolic diseases, like diabetes, can also be a cause for your dry mouth. Sleep apnea can also be a cause. It will be best to consult your doctor for an examination, to determine the exact cause.
