Overbite causes dry mouth at night and chronic cavities

You Hello! I'm a 48 year old woman with an overbite that prevents my mouth from closing. I can close it while awake but I drool a lot at night as I can't sleep on my back. This causes chronic cavities despite good oral hygiene. I sleep on cloth diapers to catch it but would love a solution to prevent my teeth and gums from being dry all night. My front teeth are in terrible shape despite thousands of dollars each year in dental work. Do you know of any possible solutions?
