Is it a loose tooth? Maybe a bump in your mouth that has been there for awhile.  Here are the parts of your mouth that may not hurt, but they do need to looked at.

Dry Mouth
Dry mouth, or xerostomia, is a very common oral condition, especially as you age. There are also more than 425 medications that include dry mouth as a side effect. But dry mouth can be related to issues beyond dental health. It’s also a common symptom of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Sjogren’s syndrome. If you have chronic dry mouth, you should be concerned and talk to your dentist.
