There are a lot of possible causes, most of them benign. You could just be breathing more through your mouth as you sleep, for instance.

If that's the only thing you're noticing, it's unlikely to be a symptom of any horrible disease.

Eat more veggies, and use mouthwash at night.

Humidifying the air could help, also. This probably happens more when the air is dry.

Eat a couple bananas while you're at it. :P The potassium won't hurt.

Bear in mind that, depending on where in the World you are, it's becoming hayfever time again. Many people develop pollen sensitivity later in life i.e. after 20 yrs of age, so keep that in mind.

I personally have a perpetually sore throat at the moment and the flowers outside are laughing at me. It's never this warm and flowery in England usually...
